A fun 5 for Friday!

Five for Friday is here and so am I!

I had such a fun week - here is a little snippet:
If you are lucky to have a teaching "bestie" than you know how special those relationships are.They are there for you whenever you need them and they make your hard work day immensely better. This is a picture of me and Lindsey and I have been lucky enough to work with her for 3 years. We plan together, goof around together, eat lunch together and vent together. We recently found out we won't be working together next year and I must say my heart is broken :( I have NO idea how I will teach without her, but I am so grateful that I have gotten the opportunity to get to know her better and she has become one of my best friends. I LOVE YOU LINDSEY!!

My practicum student, Ms. Paddy, had her last day on Wednesday and she made me the SWEETEST gift!!!! I was already loving it when I saw the Ms. Moran sign... and then she flipped it around and showed me that the other side says Mrs. Jones for when I am a married lady! I am in love!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Ms. Paddy will be missed by all my students - and ME!

This is my view on the way to work every morning. Once Spring begins, the hot air balloons take over the sky and against the mountains, the sight is just beautiful. It is such a peaceful way to start the day.

This week was teacher appreciation week and my kids and parents SPOILED me!! I felt so appreciated and I love my kids so much!! I wrote a whole post about it over at my personal blog if you want to read more: Late Nights and Lattes
