I am looking forward to a few days off for Mardi Gras. Seriously, Louisiana is a unique state! This past week, I was fortunate to attend our parish’s technology showcase. Each year, teachers from schools in the parish are invited to other schools to see how they incorporate technology in their classrooms. It is a two day event, and each day you visit three different schools. This was my second time attending, and it was an awesome experience (I took a ton of pics…my iPad threw them up below!)

OMG, where have I been? Sorry to take such a big hiatus from blogging. I’ve been in the midst of dealing with health issues, wrangling my active child, and trying to live this teacher life!
I have a quick post for today, and it is about AR or Accelerated Reader. I must admit, my school doesn’t push AR too much and as a result I don’t either. That’s my teacher confession of the day. I know that some teachers love it or hate it. I genuinely want my students to read more, especially considering that I am a first grade teacher. So, I’m going to keep better track of my students’ progress. I know you may be thinking, “Why are you starting this so late in the year though?” Well…I figure better late than never.

Happy New Year to you! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2014. One new thing for 2014 is a new collaborative blog that I am involved in called Who’s Who and Who’s New. It features new blog posts every day by awesome bloggers. Make sure you stop by today because I am the featured blogger. I have a few tips for surviving the first week after the holiday break. Check out my post here!
