Thankful Thursday, New Blog Design, and a new puppy!

Happy Thursday, ya'll! I want to introduce to you a new blog design made by the AMAZING Fairy Blog Mother! I was worried that I would wake up to a blog design blank today because my old blog design was due to disappear. I figured that I would take this time to revisit and revamp my goals for this blog! If you have noticed, I changed the name of my blog a little. I did this because I still want to incorporate my teaching experience rants into the blog, but I also want to use it to share what is going on in my day-to-day life. I hope you like it! It gives me more motivation to keep up with it and reflect on my educational posts!

While I was surfing bloglovin' I found a linky that I was thrilled about! November is a month that I use to reflect on things I DO have! Teaching Little Texans is hosting a November Linky called,

I am extremely thankful for my family and friends! I know this is what you typically hear everyone is thankful for. Honestly, family and friends are the support system of every human being. It defines our culture! My friends and family have been there for me every time I have needed support, love, or even just someone to talk to. 

I am also thankful for my students. Even though they are 7th graders and get on my nerves sometimes all the time they mean that I have a job that I love doing everyday. I have learned so much about myself through them this year. I have learned that it is okay to learn as you go, and change things accordingly. They have also taught me to be more accepting. I am so used to my little bubble of a world. 

As I go through the month of November, I am certain to be reminded of the things that I am thankful for. When I do, I will be sure to share them with you! 

I want to leave you with something you will for sure LOVE! A new puppy! His name is Gibson (after my mister's love of guitars), he is a jack russell/chihuahua. 

Hope I did not overwhelm your cute radar.

  2. Love the look!!!!! Super cute!!! I know what you mean about the title of your blog. At first mine was just Teaching Tidbits with Jamie. But the more I thought about it, I am more than just a teacher. I didn't want to just limit myself. So then came the title: Teaching Tidbits and More with Jamie!! I add the "MORE" just in case there was other things I wanted to talk about!!!

  3. Yay!!! You ended up getting a puppy! Gibson is so adorable! Your new blog design is super cute as well. :)
