But many memories were made that I will never forget!!! It was such a blessing just having time to be with my family and see the excitement in the kids when they met Mickey for the first time...priceless.
So....my big news is that...I have accepted a position as a middle school counselor at a district closer to home. I loved where I was and I must say it was a dream counseling job but being closer to home is what is best for our family and you can't beat a 10 minute drive!!! The district I am going to is absolutely fabulous and I am sooo excited!!! A lot of people seem super surprised that I will be at the middle school level because if you knew me, I am just exploding with elementary cheerfulness but I just felt like this is where I needed to go and it all felt right. I will be doing 8th grade and I can't wait to meet those kiddos!!!
I will still continue my blog and still keep blogging about elementary, as well. I will create elementary and secondary level units and items...so, no worries! I really enjoy doing that!!! So that is my big news. We came home from Disney World last night and unpacked. We woke up this morning and took down and packed up my office and came home to grocery shop so I am pretty tired but I can't wait to show you my new space!!!!
Before I go, I wanted to share some things that I am getting ready to order that are my must-haves for a new school year!!!!
I so can't wait until July 9th so I can order this new Vera Bradley laptop case!!!
The second thing is, of course, the Erin Condren planner that I am in love with!! I use this for personal use and use the pages in between the months for work, meetings, and appointments.
And how cute is this? It will be perfect for my morning coffee or tea....
And last, something to carry it all in....
I got this bag last year (different color and it says Mrs. Acker) and I love it!! It is huge and can hold everything I need!!!
I also have this new blackboard small group rules since blackboard/chalkboard seem to be the big thing this upcoming school year so feel free to check it out in my TPT store!!!
Have a wonderful week!!! I hope to post some freebies soon!! What are some of your must-have school items???? Feel free to comment or link up below!
