Currently-July & a giveaway

Happy July 1st everyone! Today I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the July Currently.

This weekend, my husband & I began the quest of potty training our son...Oh Boy!!! So right now the washing machine is washing everything that has pee-pee on it. My little guy gets to spend the day tomorrow & Wednesday with his Meem (my mother-in-law), hopefully she can make more progress than we have...he sure is stubborn & has an idea about what he does & doesn't want to do.

I just bought new sneakers for the first oh I think about 2 years, at least. They're from Payless, cause let's be honest, my summer job isn't paying a whole lot, but some is better than nothing. And these little ol' Payless sneakers are more comfortable than standing in flip-flops all day, especially for me since I'm flat footed.

My interview tomorrow is for a resource room position in my current district. I would love to be full time in this district. It's the district I graduated from & I still live in town, for the time being, and I've met some awesome people here. I really don't want to leave. Little nervous though my interview is with the Supervisor of Special Services, since the position falls under the special ed department's jurisdiction & I'm worried about any special ed. specific questions. I'm not really current on anything special ed related. Though I hear what she looks for and likes to see in the classroom, even in a small group setting, is my style of teaching...centers-based. Hoping & praying this goes well!

I took a summer job this year at a summer enrichment camp for the company I tutor for & oh boy is it trying my patience. It's always interesting when the kids range from 1st grade to 7th grade (and maybe higher, depending on any late enrollments). It's probably going to be a long summer! {sigh}

I'm currently working on a polka dot classroom decor pack & I really need to get myself in high gear to have it finished in time to put up for those of you that start in August. I don't go back until the beginning of September and I have to keep reminding myself that not everyone goes back that late.
