    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Getting Ready to Come Back

Hey all!  Hope this week has been great and everyone has been doing well with their classes.  I am just celebrating my final week day off before returning to the classroom on Monday to teach again.  I actually came to the school this morning to do my prep work for when the kiddos get back from their break, and it is crazy to think about how much there is to do with them!  It is almost March already, and they have so much to get done and accomplished before they can “graduate” to first grade.

I have some super exciting things planned for the week they get back, including activities for “I Love to Read” week and celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday!  They are going to do a green eggs and ham vote (whether or not they like them before and after trying them…green pudding and a vanilla wafer!), will make some awesome Dr. Seuss headbands to wear around the classroom, as well as some amazing One Fish Two Fish paintings that will allow them to do a little mixed media art.  I was very excited about the last one in particular, due to my background in art. 🙂  On top of all of this crazy festivity, I begin teaching my Teacher Performance Assessment lessons this week (which will be stressful and overwhelming, I’m sure).  I get to be videotaped everyday during instruction!  haha.  Regardless of the chaos, I know it will be a great week and also one that I can’t wait to get accomplished so that me and my students can (hopefully) return to some normalcy!

Hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend ahead and that Friday is going smoothly!
