8•28 | high five for friday!

H54F with a tattooed teacher in texas




the first week of school is under my belt.  and it was GREAT.  so good i was questioning it and waiting for something bad to happen.  it wasn’t perfect, but it was a really good start.  click HERE for a quick tour of my classroom!


fear the walking dead started this week.  my expectations weren’t very high because i was very skeptical.  but it watched the first episode on monday (on amazon prime since i’ve cut the cord).  and then i watched it again, just to make sure i understood everything.  it was good.  really good.

the wait is over!


my workouts this week happened, but some of them could have been better.  but i feel good.  i feel motivated to keep going.  i’m down seven pounds since the beginning of the summer and haven’t changed much.  my workouts are going really well and i’m controlling my food for the most part.  just gotta keep going!  this guy at the pool asked me if i was training for a triathlon.  after i stopped laughing, i said, “no, i’m training for life”.  unfortunately, he didn’t get me…


i had my first meeting with teachers with my new hat on: 21st century learning coach.  and it went well.  i was so relieved.  i get so nervous when i have to start something.  once i get going, i’m fine though.  i can see this position pushing me further as a teacher and coach so… i decided to go to grad school this week.  i am starting in the spring!  luckily, my school will be paying for most of it, which is making it possible for me.

  1. Congratulations on going to grad school! Also, I’m impressed by how much you’ve worked out. I keep planning on getting back to working out – but then I end up watching 5 episodes of The Brady Bunch instead. I should probably tell myself that I’m only allowed to watch it while I’m on the treadmill.

  2. Loved all of your pictures and so happy for you for making the decision to go back to grad school. I need to check out the Walking Dead–I’m always looking for new shows to watch too. I have a co-worker who loves. Also, your classroom looks awesome.
