Snow Day and March Currently!!

Here's to the first snow day of the teaching career! *Cheers with a Diet Coke can in my hand* It was crazy because when I woke up this morning, it wasn't even snowing, and yet school was canceled. But now it's snowing pretty hard and it's supposed to get worse so I guess that makes sense. And only my driver's side windshield wiper is working, so it's good I don't have to drive - although I wish I could run some errands! :)

Thanks to this snow day, I finally have time to do March's currently! Go and link up with Farley if you haven't already!

Listening: My Pandora station, "Reign in Us" by Starfield. It's a great one :)

Loving/Thinking: This week is already a short week, only Monday - Wednesday with students and then parent-teacher conferences on Thursday and no school on Friday. Now, with the snow day today, I will only have students twice this week! I'm not complaining about the snow day...but it would have been more convienent on a full week when I needed a break. Plus, I wanted to get pictures of students completing their jobs for conferences...but at least I still have tomorrow.

If you want to see something else I love, check out the 3 month baby pictures I took of my niece this weekend. Such a little cutie!! 

Wanting: To be done with all of the educational stuff I have to do that doesn't involve teaching! I have two students that need to have the IAA done this year. I'm done with one and halfway done with the other. But it's hard because I only see that other student the first two periods of the day, so I have to leave my class with my aides to work on it with him. Which is fine, but I just feel like I haven't "taught" much in Math and Language Arts lately.
I have three IEPs coming up in the next two weeks. And now we are doing a yearly assessment with all of our students called the SANDI, which is great because before we didn't have an annual assessment...but it also takes forever. So when I'm not doing IAA, I'm doing SANDI with those three students since it's ideal to get this done before their IEPs. And then I actually have to start working on those IEPs... What is up with all these special ed acronyms! My life would be so much easier without them :)

Needing: I'm home today so I should be cleaning, right? Boo, I don't want to though! 

Like/Love/Hate: So since my name is Brie, I had the letter "B" to work with here. First things that popped into my mind were that I really like blueberries (like my blueberry buckle recipe)! I'm loving my current Beth Moore Bible Study on the "Law of Love" focused on the book of Deuteronomy. Also, I hate burglars - no reason, my house has never been burglarized but it was the first thing I thought of. Now I'm thinking "bugs" would have been more appropriate.


  1. Lucky you having a snow day! It's been snowing alot here in Champlain NY too. I want it to go away so we can have Spring! Where do you live anyway? I teach AIS(K-6) so I work with many kids that need that extra boost with academics and some tender love and care.

  2. Snow day :) It's supposed to hit us tonight/tomorrow in central VA, so I might be in your shoes tomorrow. After my students' behavior/lack of brain power today, I sure hope so! :) Isn't it funny how kids are our little barometers?

    I teach in a collab setting and I know our "March Madness" has begun with IEPs, triennals, etc. Hope your day went well! :)

  3. I like your rationale for your three B's! I don't know if we'll have any snow here in Jersey...the snow seems to skip over us and head a little more north usually.

  4. I love Pandora! I love to listen to it while I am cleaning and in my classroom when the students leave in the afternoon. It helps me unwind from the day. Lucky you on the snow day! Our weather man is calling for snow tonight and in the morning. I have my teacher fingers and toes crossed for a snow day. I have tons to do but one little day won't hurt right???? I am your newest follower and would love if you would visit my blog and follow me too. I hope that you enjoyed your snow day!
