Princess Superheroes

Luckily, it’s Wednesday and that means I can do a Wordless Wednesday post and not have to wake my brain enough to write much.

AH said she wanted to be a princess superhero for Halloween and she wanted me to dress up with her. With a little help from the cape and mask we got from a superhero birthday party, and a tiara and wand we already had, her costume was pretty easy. All I had to do was make emblems with AH’s initial on it and make a tutu. Pair that with the cape, mask, wand, tiara, ruby slippers and presto, a Princess Superhero is born.

From corporate America to the classroom

It’s been a LONG time since my last post. Like, two months. LOTS has happened since I’ve written last.

There was the first day of school.

LD is now an 8th grader, JD is in fifth grade and AH is now in preschool with Ms. A.

AH also started taking dance classes and she is the most adorable tiny dancer. Ever.

Once school started back up life got really busy and I didn’t really have the energy to write.

Since I wrote my last post, I’ve made quite the career change.

I’ve gone from recruiting and managing employees in the staffing industry to managing students in a classroom.

Inner voice- Holy crap. I’m a school teacher!

I really liked my job as a staffing supervisor but always felt drawn to teaching so when the opportunity arose to teach little ones, I jumped at the chance.

So far, I’ve loved it. I go home, completely exhausted, thinking, “This is awesome. I can’t believe this is my job!”

Now that I’ve gotten the hang of lesson planning and organizing craft ideas, I can get back to blogging (and searching Pinterest for school ideas!).

I’m excited to see what the rest of the school year has in store. And for all the teachers out there who may read my humble little blog, I’d love to hear your tricks of the trade.

Happy blogging,

Adrian
