i need a new computer

this one that i have now is about to drive me up the wall!! seriously, it's old, the mouse pad works when it wants to, same with the mouse that goes into the USB port, it's slow, you can hear the fan that's "supposed" to cool it down from three rooms away. it's awful!
 maybe santa will bring me one. if not this girl is gonna start saving now!

i'm drooling over this beauty.

it's so pretty! i just got my iphone last week (no more crackberry!) and i'm totally hooked on apple now. 
maybe i can get a teacher discount, cross your fingers!

oh and i finally figured out what exactly i will be doing at my new job! i am the paraprofessional for the media center. i will be teaching research skills as well as reinforcing writing skill while integrating technology when i can. this week i'm just meeting with each grade level to see where their students need extra help and planning for january. starting next semester they will come to me as one of their specials. 
i'm so pumped! i don't know how i'm going to remember close to a thousand little faces and names but i am eager to start!!

i had a lot of lasts this semester. my last social being one of them. we've have a tacky christmas social just about every year and this year wasn't any exception. 


also, my last pi kapp frumpy sweater party

ok so i wore a "frumpy" button up

they named the new members of their rose court. i'm so proud to say that one of my sisters, and friends, had the honor of representing our chapter. congrats di di!!

december 1st was my last initiation as an active member in alpha xi delta. the next day was my senior ceremony, when i became an alumna of alpha xi delta.

i can't believe that my time as a collegiate member of alpha xi delta is over but i know that God has so many amazing challenges for me in the next chapter of my life. 
which brings me to my next piece of news....

catching up- last day in 3rd grade

i realize that i have a lot to catch yall up on so i'll start with my last day with my third grade babies! i miss those little guys so much already! i went last week to visit them and they introduced me to their elf on the shelf "snowflake". i can't wait to have my own classroom so i can do creative christmas stuff with my students!
it was so much fun picking out gift for my teacher and students. i made all the labels myself, however i must admit, i didn't make the cookies for the kids. it was just easier to the the yummy iced sugar cookies.

to my kids

to my teacher

the cake my supervising teacher had made for me

i've been so blessed to have had a wonderful supervising teacher and a great class of kids. cynthia (my teacher) and i decided that a good way for me to stay in touch with the kids is to be pen pals. it will also help them with their letter writing. they were so excited about the idea, and i'm pumped to keep in touch with them too!
