Thoughts for Fridays at School!

One of my friends sent me this for a laugh!! AMEN!


After being interviewed by the school administration, the teaching
prospect said, 'Let me see if I've got this right: 'You want me to go
into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior,
observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor
their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning. You
want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and
sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and
personal pride. 'You want me to teach them patriotism and good
citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote,
balance a checkbook, and apply for a job. You want me to check their
heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial be behavior, and make sure
that they all pass the state exams. 'You want me to provide them with an
equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate
with their parents by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.
'You want
me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a
bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that
qualifies me for food stamps. You want me to do all this and then you
tell me.................'I CAN'T PRAY?'

My Baby Shower at Portland Elementary!

Today my wonderful co-workers gave me a baby shower! They really went above and beyond to make everything so special!! The decorations were awesome thanks to Mrs. Charlotte! They gave me my hamper and trunk that I picked out for a hostess gift plus lots of diapers,wipes, and clothing! I really am blessed to work in a place that I love to go to and I am able to work with some of the kindest, funniest, and loving people around!!

P.S. I am so excited we get to do another baby shower again soon! Congrats to Grace and Emerson! Grace is our Kindergarten teacher at Portland! Grace is due in April! Ann Marie will have a little friend soon!

Ann Marie's Nursery

I think the nursery is finally done...... We still have to get our chair and rug and a few other small things! Dino put the crib together and hung the pictures for me! He is much more precise about hanging things than I am, so I usually wait around for him to do it!
