if you follow my twitter then you might be aware of the new things happening in my life. i've taught 7th grade math for 4 years. this year i will not be teaching students. my "supervisor" moved up to the administration building and i applied for her old position...and got it. :)
so my "new" job is at the same school, in the same department [yay math!], but totally different.
the title is "math specialist" - i pretty much oversee the math teachers, gather data, analyze data, lead meetings, provide, support, inform, you name it. i'm kind of excited and nervous and a lot of other things. i know i can do this job and want to prove it to a lot of people. but i'm still learning what all it entails!
i also love the math team - everyone is so kind and caring and i will not let them down. i have some large shoes to fill because our ex-boss was so awesome!! :D
the first task i decided to take on was to organize the math closet it - dun dun dun!!! i realize the word "closet" typically implies a small storage space.... FALSE. this is a massive "closet" full of all things math!!
this photograph is a lie. there is also a wall of shelves to the left, and another wall of shelves to the right. good times.
BUT i was able to cross two things off my list of things to do via ex-awesome-boss.
well, that was my work related stuff. other things i have been up to include ichatting for the first time EVAH. i've been a mac girl for 3 years and never used this program! how?!
we had a little too much fun with the effects!
shortly after this photo i got distracted by the different backgrounds...
and grabbed my snorkel. hahaha
the best part was when i took my laptop over to my mom's house where my grandparents are visiting.
they had a nice chat with my cousin and her mom [my aunt, their daughter].
and then i started messing with the settings :D
it was so hilarious to see my grandparents laughing so hard!
and every time i switched the effect, like from "dent" to "stretch," they were in hysterics!
in other news, daniel and i have been spending a lot of time with carlos and aida [you might remember them from our trip to spain].
there has been much music playing going on with these boys.
which means aida and i either watch/listen or hide in my sewing room and watch a movie :)
she's been getting along pretty well with the texas humidity/heat/random hot rain.
speaking of texas and weather fail....
