Miss Jackson...3rd Grade Teacher!

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I have posted... I know. This summer is already getting away from me and I have been busy with my summer job -waitressing!! BUT, I do have so exciting news!

I got a teaching job!!!!!!!

Yes, you read that right! I got a job. I am so beyond excited. This summer has been a long one...with all of the waiting and concern about what this fall would be like. Teaching is my calling and I have missed my student teaching kiddos so much.  I was going to be devastated if I didn't find a job. When I got called for the interview at my school, it all just felt right. It is a very tech savvy school, which fits perfectly with me as well. I am going to be a 3rd grade teacher, which also happens to be the grade I was in when I decided I wanted to be a teacher. Ahh, I love it when life comes full circle.

So, since I found out that I am going to be a teacher {which was last Wednesday} I have been working my booty off trying to figure out what I am going to do with my own classroom. There are just so many options, and the feeling of being overwhelmed soon kicked in. I have found several blogs that are life savers for me. 

This lady is a genius. She has been the nerve pill to my panic. I love that she just makes everything seem so easy. Her ideas are always functional, useful, and cheap {another added bonus!} I see her ideas, and it just makes me wonder why I didnt think of that! She also gives you tips on how to make you classroom cute. It you haven't checked out the Clutter Free Classroom, you must do so. Now. Click {here}.

Ms. Durbin is so great! When I found her blog, I was so excited. I am doing an owl theme in my classroom, so when I realized her classroom was owl themed as well I knew I had hit the jackpot. I can implement virtually everything she posts. If you want to check out another genius blog...click {here}.

Number 3: Schoolgirl Style

Melanie is so so so creative. When I came across her owl themed classroom on Pinterest, I knew it was love at first sight. I am so UNinspired by the boring teacher stores with the cookie cutter classroom theme kits. Buying something someone else made and calling it done has never been my thing. I love to put my own spin on things and I just wasn't "vibing"with anything else I had found. But Melanie saved the day. If you just need INSPIRATION, visit her site. It makes my creative juices flow just reading her blog! 

Here is the theme I bought from Schoolgirl Style

I will be posting some freebies that go along with my owl theme as soon as I create them!
