My Classroom 2014-2015

My room has gone through a few changes this year due to a new subject, buying crazy technology, and adding 5+ students to my class sizes from last year.

I am teaching Pre-Calculus this year, so I needed some new/different posters for my room. I have a stolen borrowed trigonometry poster from my super awesome Pre-Cal teammate that one of his students made for him.

I have joined the crazy podium sensation that started with a purchase of the Intuos medium tablet and ended with a trip to Fry's Electronics where I discovered boys behave the same as I do in a shoe store. Who knew? 

Learning to use it has been an adjustment, but it's only been a week since school started.

The best part of my room...DISNEY GROUPS!

This part of my room began with @froynboy's idea last year for 90's rap groups. Then my Frozen poster inspired the change to Disney groups.

Yes, I did actually say that. I may pay for such a huge compliment in the future. I was just so excited and giddy that I wasn't thinking clearly.

Here are my fantastic groups. <3


The Lion King


The Little Mermaid

Beauty and the Beast


Here's some general pics from my room:

My cousin, Sarah, and I are crazy. We've always been crazy. About 10 years ago, we decided to play with Grandma's hats. It was a different time, and I wish we wore hats now. They are kind of fabulous.

A few weeks ago while we were visiting family, Sarah and I ended up trying on dresses from our parents' weddings. We hadn't seen each other in 5 years, so we were making up for lost time. Gotta play dress up, even though we're 25. I ended up in her mom's bridesmaid dress from my parent's wedding and Sarah ended up in our grandma's dress from both of our parents' weddings.  

And so the idea for a princess photo shoot was born.
David, a friend from my previous school, is a photographer, and HE suggested (NOT ME, surprisingly) that we do a princess photo shoot. Naturally, I jumped at the chance. I mean really, how fun does a PRINCESS PHOTO SHOOT sound. 

Last week, David, my sister, my roomie, and I went to a park in Houston and took some pictures. What made this fun (besides the obvious) was all the people who did not know what to do with a woman dressed like a princess. All the people running and biking were thoroughly confused by the sight before them, so I princess waved at them and said, "Good morning!" in a British accent.

Here are some of the shots David got...Go check them out. There is one where I am attempting to ninja kick. Please don't judge me. He also blogged about our fun, so check that out too.

The lesson learned: I should dress like a princess every day.
