i love adventure
and my Jeep takes us all over the country. But for now, it's my second home. Every morning, the Renny takes me 55 miles to school. At the nice times of the school year (which are few!) I even get to enjoy the car with the roof taken off!
My commute consists of two solid routines: Voxer and Podcasts! Every morning (unless the weather is horrible or I'm talking to my mom!) I talk to my dear friend Amanda who lives in the Bay Area and then I settle in for my newest podcast obsession. Here are a few that I've been loving this year:
When I get to work, anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half later, it's a quick text to the hubby and I'm headed toward my classroom!
I love my classroom
It's my home away from home. When I walk in my classroom around 7am, all of the lights are off and the sun is just starting to break through the blinds.
I begin with the soft lighting. I plug in my white lights, sit down at my desk, and go over the day's agenda. This is about how messy my desk gets at a given time - mess and clutter don't bother me! I believe in creative chaos :-)
When the bell rings, i'm in the hallway
And once I'm there, it's time to turn it on. I might not have Pottery Barn bedroom status or avocado mash and a gluten-free smoothie breakfast, but one routine I promised myself to never break is to always greet my students at the door.
