Goodbye, 2011-2012!




My trusty Pillsbury Doughboy renamed Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man timer was a gift on the first day of my teaching career... kind of. Until that day, he lived in my Mom's kitchen and was used by her pretty much daily. Knowing I needed something to (1.) help me track my time spent on presenting lessons, (2.) use for classroom management, and (3.) be relatively inexpensive, I dropped it into my newly personalized teacher bag and off it went to live on my teacher desk. I can't remember if dinner was over or undercooked that night, however, I've celebrated the end of each school year since with a final one minute countdown and cheerful beeping.

So congratulations to all you wonderful and amazing educators out there on another completed year filled with moments of fulfillment, happiness, fun, frustration, ahas, creativity, and perseverance!! Here's to taking the night off and resuming the blog stalking for 2012-2013 tomorrow!

Glad I found you. I've still got 4.5 days to go! I heart your timer. I dropped mine on the playground and it broke into a zillion pieces (I have to time recess or I give 'em way too long). Pop in for a visit if you find a moment.
