March Currently and Update

I cannot believe that it is already March! Only 70 more days of school for me. We are getting into the PARCC testing window here in DC and let's just say that it has been a simply terrifying time. I have been chosen to be one of the main testing administrators during this time [I will be testing a total of 8 days] and apparently if I screw up this test, I could lose my teaching license! I am hoping that the testing won't be as difficult as it has been for other school districts that have started testing this week. We are looking at another snow storm this Thursday that could be a doozy, anywhere from 5 inches to over a foot. I personally wouldn't mind a snow day so that I can catch up on some grad school readings! This semester has been easier than last, thank the lord. I also haven't heard back from Montgomery County yet, but I have submitted all my items and made it through the interview so I am expecting a contract this month from them. While I am waiting, I have linked up with Farley over at Oh Boy 3rd Grade! for this month's currently. I love Currently's! Check out below and let me see those currently's!

Listening: Barefoot Contessa...I enjoy her show, sometimes she has great recipes.

Loving: The fact that we are finally above freezing! I even wore a T-shirt outside even though it was 38 degrees. Felt amazing.

Thinking: About my contract. I really want to start fresh and I want that to be Montgomery County. I am hoping to hear back this month!

Wanting: My poor iPhone 5 is crapping out. I make a phone call on 100% and my battery drops to 80% immediately. I need my upgrade which comes March 27, thankfully.

Needing: A snow day which hopefully will come on Thursday so I can catch up on my readings.

Spring Break: Spring Break in the District is so freaking late! I will have only two weeks until the end of Spring semester at American University so I will be spending my time prepping for exams and papers.

So that is it! Go link up with Farley, you won't regret it.


  1. I love watching the Barefoot Contessa too! Good luck with your testing.

  2. Hi Eden,

    I teach in DC too! :) It was so fun that I stumbled on your blog. Today was so much warmer despite that fact that everyone is freaking out about the snow storm coming. I hope (and I assume) you have a fun snow day tomorrow. Good luck in your move too MoCo. That is such a great county! Again, so fun to find your site!

    1. Yay DC teachers! Thanks for the follow. I plan on sleeping in and catching up on grad school work, political science is no joke when it comes to readings. The humidity today is great for a paralyzing dump of snow tomorrow.
