back to school!

In approximately 40 hours, I'll welcome 22 fifth graders into my classroom at Creech Road Elementary. Although I can't believe it's already here, I am very anxious to meet them all and see what it is really like to spend a whole day with them! I'll keep you updated on how things go, but for now, here are some pics of my classroom. If you want to, comment on this post with an idea for something I can do with the kids on the first day! :)

commercial photos

as some of you know, i took a job with a company out of cary, nc a couple of months ago to do some commercial photography for them. it has been quite an adventure since i had never done commercial shots before. after seeking out some advice and researching, researching, researching some of the best things to apply to such jobs, i went out to shoot some buildings! 

i should finish up within the next week or so with this project, which is good since i start a real job on friday! (ahhhhhhhhhhhhh) i'll be teaching 5th graders at creech road elementary in garner, nc and am SO SO SO excited about it. can't wait to post some pics of my precious kids.
