FYI, faithful readers!

So it seems my illustrious 8th graders have started googling me. And sadly, it's very easy to find me thanks to a certain Mr. Shall-remain-nameless-because-saying-the-name-will-just-give-another-google-hit-to-my-blog. Let's just say his name is long and Italian and I'm married to him, putting me at the forefront of all Google searches. Oh, the good old days of being Jordan Peck and nothing at all ever coming up about me in a Google search, mostly thanks to some midwestern basketball player with my name who hogged enough Google search pages that people (well, me) just got tired of looking.

Anyway, just an FYI, that I will probably either password protect this blog soon or move the blog entirely to a new address. Those pesky 8th graders are just getting too smart. If you want to stay in the loop, please email me or leave me a comment with your email so I can make sure to get you the password/new link, whichever may happen. :)

And if you're an 8th grader in Mrs. T.'s room, go do your homework!

I wish I had time for...

... making my bed in the morning
... organizing my house
... creating awesome, technologically amazing lesson plans
... just lounging around with my husband
... taking longer naps (because I have to fit a nap into my schedule now. There's no option when I get home after dealing with kids all day. Sometimes I'm afraid I'll fall asleep in my car on my ten minute drive home.)
... scrapbooking
... making dinner
... more than five minutes to eat my lunch Monday through Friday
... creating
... photo editing regularly
... watching movies
... playing
... etc.

As my new principal put it, it takes awhile to find your "teacher legs." Week three has come and gone, and we're on the brink of week four. There's so much to learn and do and be. Credential programs are pretty much a waste; you don't learn how to be a teacher until you teach.
