Teacher of the Year!!! Flower Door and More

Whoo-hoo!  I won the Picayune/Tribune Locals Love Us Teacher of the Year for Marble Falls 2014!  I am so honored and excited.  I have no idea who all nominated/voted for me.  To all who did, a great big heart felt thank you.

 I didn't want to come back to school after spring break.  I had a bad attitude that Monday and it wasn't the best of days.  So, on Tuesday, I decided to give myself an attitude check and do something creative, artsy, and inspiring.  So, I decorated my door. 

My classroom door decorated for spring.
Each flower is different and 3D.  The tallest flower encircles the window on my door.  The bright pink flower with the yellow center is strips stapled into loops.  The other bright pink was made from extra strips held together with a brad in the center and then curled around a pencil.  The purple flower was made by fringing the edges.  My students told me I had to add a Texas Bluebonnet.  The purple rose near the bottom was made by one of my student M.  The bright yellow flower on the right was made by student W. 

It did the trick!  I am back and ready for school.  In fact, I've been inspired.  My class in the past 2 weeks has gone on 2 field trips (eye doctor and police department), we've had guest (2 policemen), we've dipped candles, had a tea party and several other memorable activities that I believe will help them to retain the things that they are learning.
