"A Day In The Life of a FIRSTIE Teacher"....



I decided to join Miss Klohn's Linky Party!!! It looks like GREAT fun!  


Here is how it works...
1. Right click and save the button above to put in your post. I
suggest also making the picture a link when you add it so others can
easily find the linky party. (I wish I knew how to write the HTML code
to make it a button)
2. Tell us about a typical day in your classroom. You can share as
little or as much as you would like.
3. Come back to my blog and link up.
4. Visit the other links to see what a day is like in their class!



A Day In My 1st Grade Shoes.....goes a little like this.....
4:30....alarm went off...hit snooze approximately 2 times, which gave me 18 GLORIOUS minutes longer of my long, holiday weekend:)  YES....I know that's early, but only 30 minutes early for me! I had all intentions of going early to school this morning to rearrange:)  <I do that QUITE often!!!> 
4:48ish....I made coffee, turned on FOX News Channel, let the dog out, let the dog back in, checked the weather, blog, Facebook and Pinterest.....
5:10....enjoyed some COFFEE....about 3 times:)
5:30......started working on my freshly washed, curly hair with my best buddy.....BabyblissPro!!!
5:50....put biscuits and bacon on for the fam:)  (Did I mention that my parents had spent the night with us....well, breakfast is not an option, it's mandatory!!!:) smiles:)
6:00...finished getting ready for school.....made lunches for my girls.....picked my Autistic daughter's clothes out....woke the girls up....woke my husband up....more coffee, and SHHHHHH.....I secretly watched half of the RHBH:)

Haha ladies....I know, it was early that particular morning, but normally I'm a 5:30 girl! I get more done at that time of the day than any other....busy wife, mother & teacher....I'm sure you both can relate! With enough coffee and chocolate, I can do lots of things:)
