Oh my! What a crazy whirlwind these last few weeks have been. I have arrived back in Japan after a tremendously long journey. I am so glad to be home, but I really miss my mom and dad, sisters, and my 3 adorable nieces! Oh well, Skype and Facetime will have to get me through another year of living overseas.

Now that I am back, I am gearing up for the school year. We don't start school until the 27th of August and I don't technically have to report to work until the 22nd, but I am anxious to get going so I have already been working in my new room. I took before pictures and will take after pictures soon. Once I am finished I will share them with you. My room is huge which is very exciting but it means I have a lot of decorating to do to make it fabulous!

I have also been hard at work creating a ton of things for my room. I've gotten lots of great ideas from all the fabulous blogs I follow, as well as my newest addiction, Pinterest. I can't wait to share these items here.

The next few weeks will be exciting as I get ready to meet my students and begin posting all my great stuff to share with you! Can't wait to see what you think!

  3. How neat that you teach in Japan :) I hope that the parent communication forms come in handy for you :) I can't wait to read your tales of being a teacher in Japan. 1st grade is the BEST grade to teach. I hope you love it :)
