Yesterday we spent some time with our ESL students discussing the meaning of  Thanksgiving. We watched a video about the First Thanksgiving.  The we discussed things we were thankful for.  It was a nice day.  We even had a Thanksgiving Feast of  Hot Cheetos, Doritoes and Pumpkin Pie.  It was cute. 
I am thankful for my husband, who is my best friend, my sweetheart and my rock.
I am thankful for my family, who I miss every day with them living so far away.
I am thankful for my true friends...especially the ones who stand by me and who are super fun!
I am thankful for my job and my coworkers, especially my para, who helps me every day.
I am thankful for my wonderful home and my buddies-my dachshund, Tuff; my border collie, O'Reilly; and my three fabulous horses, Aspen, Robin & Cowgirl.
I wish everyone out there a wonderful Thanksgiving!


I am really excited about our after school program.  I got an email for one of our high school club teachers.  She said the high school students were really excited about helping out. YAY! 
Yesterday was our last day before our week off for Thanksgiving. One of our first grade students showed up in my excited.  He said, "oh goodie, I am the first person here!"  It was pretty cool to see he was excited about stating after school.  Unfortunately, he missed the bus because we don't meet on Fridays.  Hee hee.  He was so adorable though.  Here are a few more pictures.

AOC-Academic Opportunity Center

At our school, we have many many high needs/at risk students.  This year, as an ESL teacher, I see that need more so than I have in the past as a first grade teacher.  So I have partnered with several of our high school clubs to create a homework/practice club.  It's been pretty neat because our teachers refer students to attend and the high school clubs provide the volunteers to help the younger students out.  The first two weeks were successful.  Not only are we helping the elementary students, but we are helping the older students out by giving them the opportunity to get some community service hours and also in the end they will get letters of recommendations from me.  YAY!YAY! YAY!

Dia de Los Muertos

So I am really excited that I just found the app for my iPad for Blogger.  It makes posting so much easier.  I took a ton of pictures from our week of Dia de los Muertos.  When I posted last, I just tried to do a few since I hadn't posted from my iPad.  So here are a few more pictures.
