Hey, Y'all! I'm linking up with Latoya Reed of Flying Into First Grade for her fun, and first, linky party.
Her directions are to share three things about myself with you, based on my initials. My whole name is Sherron Brooke Gravett, although no one ever calls me Sherron, unless it's a new doctor, or something.
So, for S, I'd have to go with Sassy! My New Year's Resolution was even to zip it! My smart mouth has gotten me in more trouble in my life than anything else. I try so hard to teach my little ones that life is not easy with a hard head or a smart mouth, but I guess some of us are just destined to be that way! My family's really sarcastic, and I grew up with all of us always teasing each other, so my sense of humor is the same. Lots of people don't get it, and think I'm really mean, so I have tried and tried to change that about myself. Goodness knows, I'm not out to hurt anyone's feelings or intentionally be mean - it's just the Sassy in me!
B is for bees. Even though I'm allergic to bee stings, I think decorating my classroom with bees is so dang cute (owls are new for me)! I love the colors, the flowers that naturally go with bees, and just find so much cute bee stuff; I love it!
G has to be for God. I am so grateful to have been raised in a Christian family and to know that God created me just the way He intended (sassy, or not). I cherish the "moment of silence" at our school each morning, and have a horrible day every single time I get distracted during that time and fail to pray for my students and their learning, my family, and for myself to be the best teacher I can be that day. Today, our asst. principal didn't call for the "moment", but I told my class we'd be taking one anyway. They know not to talk, or come up to me, or disturb me in any way until I raise my head. Now, whether they know I'm praying or not, I have no idea, because my eyes are closed, and I have no idea what they're doing. It's 30 sacred seconds, if that many, but God is right there in those seconds, and remains with me at all times, praise!
