Teacher Style File 01.14.10

Wow- we are 2 weeks into the new year. That is just crazy! I am already counting down the school days till feburary vacation. haha is that bad? (by the way its 18 school days)

I love this bright turquoise blouse I got at the goodwill. Its got this awesome ruffle collar! Old blouses are seriously the best thing!!!

How is everyones week going? I have not been doing a very good job this week with staying non stressed (goal for 2010) but I am working on it. Its been a good week for the most part though. I have just been getting to bed way later than I have hoped. We started clay this week in one of my classes, which is always a fun part of the class. I just have lots of battles with the kiln during these months. Its always so upsetting when the kiln doesnt fire right and I ruin everyones projects. DOH!

I am the faculty advisor for a lot of clubs at school and this week has been busy with that stuff. Prom meetings have started which are fun but very busy, also I am the Helping Hands advisor so we are coming up with all these raffles to raise money for the red cross to send to Haiti. Although it’s a lot of work, its a lot of fun seeing the kids get involed and wanting to make a difference.


Blouse: Goodwill $1.99
Jumper: Forever 21 (clearance rack)
Tights: Target $6
Over the Knee Socks: Target $6
Boots: Chinese Laundy $70
