It's 'currently' my birthday month!

Where did the summer go? 
 I am sure you are all asking yourselves the same thing.

I know it's been a month since I last blogged but I've been Instagram-ing! I don't have internet at home right now and it's just oh so easy to post pictures, I'll try to get back into the groove again soon. For now make sure you're following me on Instagram. I post almost daily. 

Just search TheTeacherDiaries

Guess what?
I have some exciting news! 
I got a job! I'll be teaching 4th grade this year! (Pending board approval) 
These past few weeks were some very tough weeks. If you've been reading my sporadic posts, you know I wanted to move to San Antonio and teach there. I applied at a few districts and nothing happened. I realized that all my were prayers were

"I want to live ______." 

"I want to teach ______ grade.

"I want to work in _____ district." 

I wasn't asking God what He wanted. I say I want His will for my life but I don't want to let go. 

So I applied here. I told God if this is where He wants me then I'll get a job here. Long story short, I turned in my application on a Tuesday, got a call for an interview on Wednesday, had interview on Friday and by Monday, all my references had been called. 

My first teacher interview ever and I got the job.

A big thank you to everyone who shared tips and advice on Instagram. Y'all eased my nerves and were of great help! 

Now onto currently...

It's August and it's my birthday month! Whoo! 




I don't have a picture of  this awesome bag,  I'll post one on Instagram later today. make sure you're following. :) 



I want nothing more but to be a blessing in the lives of the students who will be in my classroom.  I believe God wants me here and at that school for a reason. 

So I'm letting go...


My room is a blank canvas right now.  And I'm so excited!  I'm allowed to cover the entire walls, top to bottom! :D


Being that this is my first year, I'm not sure what I must have.
Feel free to share items you think I need to help my first year run smoothly.
