Swooning over our family photos and this blue-eyed stud that made me a mommy! 💜

Measurement Gardens!! A fun, colorful way to assess and display your kiddos measuring skills. Definitely one of my favorites from the year 🌸 #iteach #iteach2nd #teacher #teacherlife #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachergram

I always forget about Teacher Appreciation Week, and then walk into the sweetest gifts! 💗🌺🌸 A great way to start the week. PS, teachers….you’re the shit. Don’t forget it.

PLAN. TEACH. REPEAT! Only 6 weeks left over here! How many more Friday do you have left until the most deserved summer vacation to date?!?!

I have discovered an AMAZING new website for our kiddos!! Have you guys heard of Tract?! It’s an online community for kids to teach other kids! It offers project-based lessons in a variety of topics that our kids are interested in. Not only can they complete projects, but they can create their own!!! Best part…Tract is FREE forever for teachers IF you use code EDVENTURES at What an amazing resource year round, BUT even better for the end of the year to keep them busy, engaged, and learning!!

Sweetie needed a little ✨facelift✨. Swipe for the before! I am on Spring Break and in MAJOR organizing mode (specifically thanks to binging @thehomeedit). This is a project I’ve wanted to do for a while and I finally found the time! These bins are in lieu of a filing cabinet, and my brain functions so much better with beautiful organization. I made these labels SUPER easily using PowerPoint. I have a video (link in bio) teaching you how to make whatever kind of label/aesthetic you want!

AN ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE!! This is my all time favorite book to read about growth mindset. Especially this year, since my kiddos have never experienced a “normal” school year. Things feel HARD. I always hear my kids say to one another “I can’t do it YET!” after reading this book 🥲Seriously, run and get it. Game changer

BOO! Just here to creep up your feed and say Happy Crazy Hair Day from Room 10 🙃

POST PARTUM IS A BITCH. My littlest baby is 8 months old, and I am JUST NOW starting to feel like myself again (since my FIRST baby). Post partum is such a whirlwind. I’m not even talking PP depression/anxiety (both of which I’ve experienced in some form or another), but just post partum sense of self. It’s true, becoming a mom changes you. My soul feels changed. However, I feel like I accepted that last statement TOO much, and now realize post partum is to blame for SO much of the pieces of me that felt “lost”. So in light of pulling back the curtain on PP struggles, here are some pieces of me I can feel coming back to the surface- 👩‍🏫Starting to love my job again. 🥑Caring about what goes into my body. 🏋️‍♀️Excited to exercise and move my body. 🌱An interest in my garden. 🌏A deep desire to travel (with my babes). ✨Feeling inspired to be productive in general. AND DAMN IT FEELS GOOD.

Still my favorite part of my room this year!! I could never find a way to make these drawers work for me, but @misswestbest labels have SAVED me. Not only are these carts beautiful, but SO functional!

I wanted to follow up a chaotic live/post with a reminder that I’m still here. I’m still in the thick of it with all of you. I’m still here for all my kiddos. Just because I don’t know what’s in store for my future, doesn’t mean I don’t still show up and give my all to these students. Do I have bad days AND good days?? Duh. I love a LOT about this profession. No decisions will be taken lightly or made overnight, but thank you for all the support I have already received in response to that post ❤️

I’M BACK!!!!! You guys, I haven’t taught since June, and tomorrow my maternity leave officially ends and I’m back in the classroom 😭. It’s the most bittersweet feeling, but luckily I’ve done this once, and I know it’ll all be okay. Definitely having First Day Jitters, but can’t wait to be back doing what I love ❤️. Don’t worry, I’m vlogging the whole thing 😜When do you all go back?! #teachersofinstagram #iteachsecond #iteachtoo #teachermom #backtoschool

This is 30! 🥂 (when gma and gpa have the kids)

Hi friends! Yes, I am alive. These past 7 weeks I have taken off my teacher hat and fully been in mommy mode. I know social media is something I signed up for, but in all honesty, I have never been really good at it! When big things happen I tend to unplug and stay as present as I can. And because of this, teaching content has slowed down (but not for long 😉). Instead of apologizing, I just want to say thank you for being patient with me and your continued sweet messages! I promise I will be back in full force! Until then, I wanted to just share a quick photo dump of a glimpse of these last 7 weeks! Oh and also, do you want to see some non teaching life stuff on here?!? Let me know. I love you all 💕
