Classroom – De-clutter and Decorate!
Professional-Present without Fear!
Want to know a secret? I’m TERRIFIED of presenting in front of adults. A hundred 9 year olds? No problem! 10 adults? Shaking in my boots! But I LOVE to share and have been presenting at my own school and own district several times. I just got inducted into our district technology leadership team so will presenting several times with this and am looking to apply to present next year at our state music and state tech conference. Wish me luck!

Just for Me – Lose Weight/ Drink Water
I had 3 kids in 5 years. That was tough on my body. Now I’m about 10lbs from my pre-pregnant body and it is all sitting in my belly. I get asked pretty often if I’m having another child. Um, no. So hopefully this year I can shake those 10 lbs! I also need to drink more water. When I was breastfeeding, I drank about half a gallon a day. Now I drink maybe 2 glasses. I am going to go back to that 1/2 gallon! Or at least more than 2 glasses 🙂
Wrapping Things Up
My final advice? When in doubt, bake cookies! (Pillsbury makes an excellent pull apart cookie dough, I must say). A dozen cookies on someone’s desk can make them feel warm and gooey inside (pun intended). This strategy has been around since the beginning of time and is a tried and true method.
