Monday Meet Me: What I am Thankful for

It's Monday again, and time for the Monday Meet Me with The Teaching Tribune!!! :)
I have SOOOOO much fun with this on Monday because I LOVE meeting new bloggers!!! :)  Also, thank you yesterday to all of those who follow me!  As soon as I posted my flash freebie I had 6 downloads INSTANTLY! :)  If you don't already follow me on my FB page, please do!  ANY new products I put on TPT will be a flash freebie! :)

So, this week it is three things that we are thankful for.  I am pretty sure that mine are pretty generic, but I can't help that it is what I am thankful for. :)

So, the first thing that I am thankful for is my family. :)  I LOVE my family a WHOLE lot, and it makes it VERY hard to live in another state sometimes!!

The second thing that I am thankful for is the ability to be visiting my family in Michigan right now (see number 1).  Last summer we were not able to go home because our son was in the NICU, so it is VERY special for us to be home this year AND bring our son. What a difference a year makes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

The third thing that I am thankful for is that I have worked in two schools where I have worked with some AMAZING people!!!!!!!!  I have learned SOOOOO much from them, and am a better teacher because of it!  We are in Michigan right now, and got together with the staff from one of those schools.  It's closed now because its charter was not renewed, but this was a school where I met a LOT of amazing teachers (including my husband!!  ha ha).  Even after 6 years, we still remain close!
Our reunion party from Friday!! :)

As some of you may know, I left my second school (in NC) this year to try my hand at middle school.  I know that this school is AMAZING, and I already LOVE my new team, but I also left a great school to take a chance on this, so I really hope that I love it JUST as much! :)

Can't wait to do some blog hopping today to meet some new bloggers, and visit some that I am following.

  1. It is soooo hard living in a different state than your family. It takes me at least 14 hours to get to my parents via airplane, wait time in airports and driving to the airport. I so wish I only lived 5 minutes away from them like I did when I was younger. Moving schools is always a scary thought, but I'm hoping your new adventure will be great!

    1. Alison-WOW 14 hours via airplane??? I also wish I lived closer!

  2. Meeting your husband through school- How special!! That's great that you were able to learn from so many different people at the 2 schools.. Having a variety of go-to people is always a good thing! Living in a different state from your family would be so difficult! I bet that makes the visits EXTRA special. :)

    1. You're right! The visits are EXTRA special!!!!!!

  3. Hi there! I'm visiting from the Monday Meet Up! It's always great to have good co-workers. It makes the job that much more enjoyable!
