A Day in the Life of a Teacher Linky Party

Hey there!
I am linking up with Jessica at Second Grade Nest for her July linky party- A Day in the Life... of a Teacher!
Click on the image below to link up with her!

With it being summer (what's left of it) my days look quite different than during the school year.
And I will be honest...
I am adding in a picture from Monday also.
So it is kind of like a couple days in the life. lol

So here was my Tuesday and part of Monday!

 My day started (yes I said started with a 10:00 a.m. time) with my must-have coffee and posting on my blog.
I haven't been sleeping well lately (maybe because of anxiety about school starting next week) and get my best sleep between 3:30 and 10:00.

Now is where my days split...
I have to include what I did on Monday because it was with my co-blogger, Emily.
We met up and went to lunch on the Plaza.
We went to M&S Grill.
Here was the view from the window we were sitting at.
Beautiful isn't it? :)

And what I did at that same time but on Tuesday...

I met up with my good friend, Tracy to work on ELA units of study.  We are almost finished with unit 3! YEAH!!!
In this picture I also included my teacher bag from last year.
I ordered a new one that is pink and black!
And of course I had to include the super large Diet Coke that Emily picked up for me! :)

After working on units of study for 4 hours, I headed off for my little shy of an hour trek to my sisters house to babysit my nieces.
Our evening started with dinner and a movie.
Dinner included fish and veggies for me, but my nieces had mac and cheese with their fish.
The movie was one of our favorites- Phantom of the Opera.
Have you seen it?  It is amazing!!!

 After the movie, there was some silliness with the pics above.  Caitlyn is at that age and didn't want to be in a picture (because she said she looked bad) so I posted the pic that she let me take; her covering her face. lol
Maddy is to the right.  I was in the pic with her, but couldn't get it to fit.
At the bottom is Audrey!
Aren't they adorable? :)

A large portion of my day-to-day life is spent on the road and drinking water.
So that is why this pic says throughout the day.
Water is important with my weight-loss journey.
I drink about 80 ounces a day.
I live in the city and have a pretty good drive to meet up with people!
So I drove up North to meet with Tracy which was about 20 minutes and from there I drove to Bates City which was about 50 minutes away from where I was working.
Then I drove home which was about a 40 minute drive!
Lots of driving, huh?

So that is a day in the life of this teacher!
I love having the summers off because there is so many fun things to do with friends and family!

Head on over to Second Grade Nest and tells us about a day in your life!

  1. What a fun day! I would love to sleep in all the way to 10:00 a.m. I'm jealous!!!

    1. I am not always that lazy! lol
      The construction across the street has had me up numerous times by 7am. ugh
      It does feel nice to sleep in a bit though.
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. :)

  2. Soooo nice to sleep in when you can! With my 2 year old, it's not often! :D

  3. I can imagine! lol
    My days of sleeping in are numbered though. I am in training all day tomorrow and am out of town Monday-Wednesday of next week. Then it is back to school on Thursday.
    I enjoyed it while I was able to. :)
    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Where did summer even GO?! Sounds like you have had some fun getting back "into" some school stuff. When you walk into school- it feels like you just never left! It was fun sharing your day with you! :)
