done-zo.

i've officially finished my second year of teaching middle school...
and extra bonus, this year i didn't get "fired" a.k.a. "let go because of budget cuts."
i call that a success. 

fortunately i have friends who recognize the gravity of this accomplishment.

as an end of the year wrap up i had my students reflect on what they learned this year...
some of them were very sweet and made me feel like a rockstar...

others were also sweet, but a bit misguided...

Photobucket

some were right on...

Photobucket

some stated the obvious...

while others were perfect representations of the middle school psyche.

Photobucket

to celebrate our accomplishment and...
in order to reward ourselves for surviving the year...
kari and i decided to treat ourselves to a pedicure at a fancy spot that serves wine!

Photobucket

and it was PERFECT.

and now i get a whole weekend break before summer school:)
who needs a full summer vaca anyway?
(yes i teared up a bit while typing that)

it's all for the kids (and the $$$) though, right?

  4. This made me laugh so much I had to have Shaun read it. And your commentary is perfect.

    I know your spring break is going to be awesome.
