I am a busy mom of the most awesome one year old I know. Cooper inspires me to work to keep my life in balance and therefore his. No matter what the day brings I try to find a way to balance work, health, and fun into everyday! Hopefully some of these things will help others as they navigate their own path as a young family!! :)
I thought it was tough to teach kids math! It is nothing compared to teach them 4 easy dance steps to “Call Me Maybe.” My colleague found this video on YouTube and it is awesome and I wanted to share it with other teacher looking for some end of the year fun!
The end of the year is always a blast! We have had our sixth graders doing fitness challenges (burpees included), scavenger hunts, and now their FLASHMOB.
Being a teacher, especially an inner city teacher with at risk students, it is important to be a positive role model in every aspect as you would want to be with your own child. I talk fitness and sports with my students everyday. Sometimes we even run after school so the students can see that we are outside, having fun and being active. :) I’ll post the video of our lunchtime flashmob next week!
