Meet the Teacher!

Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. I have been super busy setting up my classroom. Last night was "Meet the Teacher" night so I needed everything to be perfect. Here are some pictures. Remember a couple of months ago I told you I was thinking about changing my theme? Well, I did! I did an apple theme and I think it turned out pretty cute. What are your throughts?

my girls! (lisa- been teaching with her 4 years, kelli- 5 years, me, and kate-6 years) we are such a great team not to mention great friends. I am so lucky!

here we are again- this time with Kim. This is her first year on our team. Her preschool position got cut last year and she moved up to our team. Heres to a great year in first grade!
I had a great "Meet the Teacher" night last night. Pretty good turnout (12/22) families visited my room and they were all so adorable. I am def excited for this school year. Ive got a great feeling about this year!
