Starting the Year Right!

Well, well, well, look who decided to do a blog post...This girl :)

Can I tell you it's been a busy semester for me? I know, here she does again making excuses, but I can guarantee this second semester is going to be full-blog-mode for me. So, let me start by explaining a little bit of what has been going on....

I graduated!! 
Yep, this girl has her masters from Appalachian State University in Middle Grades Education. Graduation was December 14th. We did it all in one and a half years because of the "lovely" situation that North Carolina government has put teachers in...but that's another rant for another day. We had 10 hours for both the second summer and fall semesters. Along with those ten hours, I started my first year at Clover Middle School, which I absolutely love, in a new grade level, new state, and new content areas. Sooo...this girls been a little busy. And on top of that...Basketball season started November 4th. I could not have been more excited! Basketball season is my favorite time of the school year...along with softball season :)

Well now that that is's time to focus a little more closely on the wonderful things that are going on at Clover Middle School. I know my 8th graders are doing fabulous things in both Math and Science and I am looking forward to finally getting the chance to share those!

But in the meantime...We started the year off right with my 7th grade girls basketball team today by attending the Clover High School girls J.V. and Varsity games. We watched the games in hopes to get some pointers and ideas about how to improve our own skills and fundamentals. We had a great time and really enjoyed rooting for the girls!
The cool crowd sits with the coach :)

Here's our team pictures for my lovely and wonderful 7th grade girls. I have to say I love these girls. They work hard and definitely keep my laughing through practices and games. I look forward to finishing the second half of the season with them and watching them grow in basketball everyday. 

We took a serious one...

So of course we needed a goofy one.

So until next time....promise I'll be updating weekly with the fabulous things both my 8th grade Math and Science kiddos are well as my amazing girls on the basketball court :)
