It is a new month which means it's time for Farley's Currently. 

    Right now my niece and nephew are over at my house.  It is nice to get to spend some time with them over Spring break.  We have been out of school since last Wednesday.  Tomorrow and Friday are optional days and I decided to work tomorrow just so I can have the rest of the weekend to relax and not think about school.  This break has been much needed and I've tried very hard not to think too much about work.
    My goal over Spring break was to finish at least two books.  I've been doing too many other things for that to happen thus far but one book I really want to try to finish is The Hobbit.  If I have time I'd also like to read The Glass Castle.
   Friday is my dad's birthday and Saturday is my niece's first birthday party.  I need to get some shopping done before then but both of them are pretty hard to buy for.  My dad has every tool you could think of and my niece probably already has every toy made for one year old's.
   My advice to leave work at school is something I need to really listen to myself.  It has been such a great week knowing that I don't have to think about school for a while.  I need to get in the habit of leaving work at school and not thinking about it when I get home.
   For now I'm going to enjoy what is left of Spring break!  Have a great week.


  1. I hear ya on Spring Break. Ours has been two weeks ago and I'm so ready for summer!

  2. Hello! I found you through this Currently- you were quite a few back from where I linked in but I was excited to see a blog from a sixth grade teacher!

    I teach year six in New Zealand (which I think is equivalent to your year 5)

    Your advice about leaving work at school is so important (but so hard!) Not even just because there is always so much to do (which there is) but also because I love it and it's always on my mind. Although I do find my best ideas come when I force myself to stop and not do anything for awhile- that's when the brain really starts getting creative!

    Now that I've started a blog there's even more to do and it's all so fun- however I will be taking your advice and forcing breaks upon myself to stay sane!

    I'm sure as your latest follower I'll be visiting again soon!
