Christmas Wishlist

Dear Santa, 

I promise I've been a good girl all year long....um, except for the time, when, um, well...ok, nevermind. So, some of you blogging buddies may have been a lot better than I have this year {boo!} so I thought it would be FUN to put together a list of some great gifts for teachers {yes, I got sucked into the commercialism of Christmas...forgive me} & please forgive me for breaking the number #1 rule in blogging- TWO posts in a day...YIKES...I'm just terrible at this!


At the top of every teacher's wishlist should, should, should {I can't stress this enough} be a Scotch laminator. I absolutely HEART mine! It's small, lightweight and comes in very handy for those quick projects you need to complete in a short amount of time. No more lining up in my teacher's lounge waiting for my items to be laminated. I've also found very inexpensive sheets for sale on Amazon


An Erin Condren Planner...well worth the price, c'mon your worth the splurge!


A thirty-one tote bag- perfect for carrying all your items to & from school. I can't live without mine!



My stapler has seen better days- This is definitely on my wishlist! How pretty is this traffic-stopping lipstick red stapler?!

 
Store your files on this adorable jeweled thumb drive!


SHARPIES!!! A teacher can never, ever have enough Sharpies.


TOMS!!! Every teacher needs to be comfortable & what better way then wearing these cuties to work? I wore high heels for the first half of my teaching career- boy am I paying for it now with my chiropractor bill :D


And for those ready to SPLURGE {I hope Santa doesn't disappoint me this year} 

An Apple imac {oohhh lala}
 
Nikon camera d700




Please Santa, don't dissapoint me!! 



My First Linky Party

Oh' Boy 4th Grade is having a linky party! Hop on over to her blog and get your LINKY on! I'd love to hear what's on your "currently" list....
 
Have a Great Day!

Welcome to my Blog!

I am 12.kinds.of.excited. to finally create my own blog. It was a decision I contemplated with for a while now but finally decided to take the plunge. I have enjoyed blog stalking for a long time now and thought it was my turn to give back to this wonderful community of educators who have inspired me in more ways than one. Many thanks to Alicia from Dreamlike Magic for setting me up with this fantastic blog design. I have been teaching for 9 years now and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood. Currently, I am teaching Kindergarten. 

Thanks for stopping by!
