Summer Goals

Hey everyone!  Things have been crazy town lately.  You know the drill, end of the year crazy.  Now that I've been settled into summer I thought I would let you all know what has been happening and tell you my goals for the summer (both professionally and personally).

What's Been Happening:
* I survived my first two semesters of grad school.  I'm going for my Master's in Reading- Reading Specialist.  Currently almost finished with one of my summer classes.  I have another in July.  Man oh man is it tough balancing classes and teaching, but I did it.  I'd rather do it now than when I have little ones running around.
* I am soon to be Mrs. Hadley!  I got engaged on the last day of school at the end of our school-wide talent show.  I had zero idea it was coming.  My mom acted weird in February pretending to see if I wanted a ring she got for her work anniversary and making me try it on...but other than that, I did not know when, where, or how.  I was completely shocked!

* I am getting married in early August!  I am just crazy enough to plan a wedding in 2 1/2 months.  I just got the dress yesterday!  Everything is mostly good to go other than one bridesmaid dress and catering.  Those are the biggies left.

* I want to read 5 professional development books this summer.  I currently have almost 2 completed.
* Print and prep all my KinderMath & KinderLiteracy units by the amazing Tara West over at Little Minds at Work.  I have almost all of the math units printed and binded into unit books.
* Update my back to school information for Open House and first week of school.

* GET MARRIED!  :)  My mom and Mr. Hadley have been amazing help!
* Read 10 just for fun books.

* Plan a honeymoon for Christmas break.
* Relax and enjoy the summer!


  1. Congratulations on your engagement! My husband proposed to me at school too! I knew we would be getting engaged soon, but had no idea when or how it would happen. I went to pick my kinders up from music, and there they were, holding up signs that spelled out WILL YOU MARRY ME??? It was amazing. You will remember your proposal forever (and so will your coworkers and students!)

    1. Thank yo so much! I had a dream that my students held up signs a few weeks before he proposed. That's so cool he did that. :) Yes, I definitely won't forget it. When we got back to the classroom to eat lunch and then be dismissed, my kindergarteners were hilarious asking all sorts of funny questions about my name and giving me cake flavors. It was a fun day!
