22 things about me at 22.

I've done this list for the past couple of years. It's a nice reflection of my life and what's going on. It's a little past my birthday now but better late than never.

1. I am currently watching the TV show Chuck and loving it.
2. I teach 2nd grade.
3. I hate winter/snow.
4. Diet Coke is still my downfall, but when I go to SWIG lately I've been getting a Dirty Dr. Pepper.
5. I've become a shampoo/conditioner snob. Only the best for my hair.
6. I've been trying to make biscuits successfully and keep somehow I failing.
7. I teach Sunday School.
8. I get on Pinterest to kill time or to relieve stress.
9. I got a gym membership.
10. I attend Zumba twice a week and I'm loving it.
11. The downfall of working with kids is I get sick..a LOT.
12. I walk across the stage at BYU in less than two weeks, but I don't technically graduate until June.
13. I'm taking Poli Sci 110 Independent Study class so I can still graduate on schedule. Thanks BYU for not catching that sooner..
14. I miss the Florida daily.
15. I still talk to my mom almost everyday on the phone.
16. I've finally started wearing heels/wedges occasionally. It's honestly a lot of work, but beauty is pain.
17. I left my flannel sheets on my bed until April.
18. I love to floss.
19. I'm getting a Utah Drivers License.
20. I bought a car last June. 2011 Camry.
21. I've learned to appreciate socks. Growing up in Florida I didn't wear socks much but now I can't sleep without them.
22. I have no idea where my life will be next year at 23 but I'm sure it'll be exactly where it needs to be.

BYU. Westmore. Anxiety. Family. Trusting. MY 5 YEARS IN UTAH.

For me, it’s usually night when all the feels start hitting and I get all sorts of nostalgic. August brings so many challenges for me in many ways. Once August hits it means summer is finally coming to an end and even though I’m usually ready to go back to work, the stress starts to creep in. Going into my 4th year seems bizarre. I don’t feel as if I’m a seasoned teacher, but since I’m not worried about the first day of school I think that says something. August also is the month where 5 years ago I took a big risk and moved to Utah. I left the comfort of my sweet southern home and stepped out on my own. Since 5 years seems like an eternity and a second all at the same time, I decided to write down the 5 most important things that have happened to me since I moved here.
1.Attending and graduating from BYU. I loved my time at BYU. I ran through my experience and I don’t regret that at all. I always knew the college lifestyle wasn’t for me, so getting through it fast was a blessing. I …

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …

The Prayer of a Teacher After the First Day of School.

I cried today. Lately, I haven't been much of a cryer. My mom will tell you that it takes a lot to make me cry. Today I cried. I cried because today was the first day of school. I am exhausted. My feet hurt, my face is greasy, and I'm not sure how I smell. I smiled as 22 brand new students walked into classroom 120. I felt the high energy of the kids who wished summer was at least another month longer. I tried to explain the rules and procedures but forgot how difficult that can be. This year will prove to be the biggest challenge in my teaching career. I miss my kids from last year, still. I hope the impact they've left on me will never change. Today, I write down a prayer for myself and for all my teachers out there. I pray that I will make a difference. I pray that tomorrow when the routines begin that I will give direction with clarity. I pray that I will find something to love about each one of my students. I pray I don't forget the good kids while I'm focusin…
