feel like a kid again

i'm getting that nervous/excited feeling i use to get before the first day of school. i think it's ten times worst though because i didn't get nearly enough time to get my classroom ready since it was still under construction. but things are coming together i'm very excited.

the first day of school is also making me miss the first graders i had the opportunity to teach for the last few months of school last year. they were absolutely amazing and definitely set the bar high for all my future classes.

how cute are they!

so maybe i'm a little excited

i went school supply shopping today and i got A LOT of stuff. i always loved school supply shopping when i was a kid and even as an adult whenever i go into an office max i want to get everything, is that weird? well at least now i have an excuse to do it every year:)

ms. serrano

i have wonderful news!!
i'm was offered a position as a second grade teacher and i gladly accepted.
this has been such a looooong process for me and i am so relieved and excited to finally be starting my career. i have such a passion for this, i truly hope to make a difference and be a positive influence in children's lives.
scary part is that school starts in a week and a half so not too much time to prepare!
can't wait to go shopping for classroom stuff:)

showered with blessings

last weekend i was in orlando for one of my dear friend's bridal shower. all the girls in attendance were past co-workers of mine from my days at discovery cove and it was so good to see everyone and catch up, especially my good friends because i miss them so much.

the beautiful bride to be in the middle with her bridesmaids.

i am so happy and honored to be part of sara's wedding. she is one of my very best friend's and a friend i know i will have forever.
