June Currently....1/2 a Month Late

I am SO close to last day!  But here is this month's Currently that was not what I should have been working on.
Listening:  REPEATEDLY to the Newsies Musical soundtrack.  It is amazing...and I hate to say it, but I like it better than the original version....sorry Christian
Loving:  The Tony Awards are always so entertaining!  AND I will be in New York in less than a month to see some of these shows LIVE!
Thinking: My class was incredibly difficult this year....emotionally disturbed is a diagnosis I am just not sure how prepared I was/am to deal with.  That being said, I am so sad to see them go and so glad I am teaching a straight 3rd next year, so I get a mulligan with half of them.
The referral, minor alert, and daily check-in paper file (this is only Sep-Dec)
Wanting:  Mary Poppins to snap her fingers and have my report cards and comments magically done!
Needing:  To get my "to read" stack ready....three more days and I begin the book-a-day challenge.
Vacaying:  Noook-I read so fast that I could fill a suitcase just with books, so my Nook really cuts down on the packing issues.  That is all I got....traveling is not something I do enough to have favs!
And a bonus pic of my soon to be new housemate-
You know the drill....go check out more June happenings with Farley.
Happy Monday,


  1. I was just reading your currently and I am watching Newsies right now. We were talking at lunch today about getting tickets to a Broadway show this summer (I live in MA and I love NYC) and it made me crave Newsies! :o)

    1. Ha! I was watching while working on report cards last week! The soundtrack for the musical version is AMAZING! Almost makes me cry! We are visiting Boston and Philadelphia during our trip too! SO excited for Fenway!

  2. Send Mary Poppins to my house when you're done with her :) and have a BLAST in NY!!

  3. A Book a Day Challenge? That sounds difficult but really fun. I'm super excited to begin reading for fun this summer as well!

  4. I also love my Nook! I don't think I could read a book a day. Good luck with your summer challenge!

  5. Your new little housemate is very sweet. Happy almost end to your year.

  6. I like the idea of a book a day but I don't know if I could pull it off with all the organizing and creating I want to do this summer! Any education books you plan on reading? I have 6 to read for my master's and then a couple others I want to read, plus non-education books too. I think summer should be longer so teachers can read more and create more! :-) Happy Reading!

  7. What kind of books do you like? I'm looking for a book friend! I had one except she had her 2nd baby so she hasn't been reading lately. I love the Bungalow by Sarah Jio if you haven't read it already.

  8. Where have I been not following this super cute blog?

  9. Awww-your new housemate is just precious! :) I also really envy that you can read a book-a-day. I'm lucky if I get through one per week-but I am reading much more now! I finished 3 from my summer reading list already! :)


  10. First off, I LOVE the Newsies soundtrack! Such an amazing musical! As for what your thinking, I am on the same page as you! I just completed my first year of teaching and having the summer off has been pretty boring! Finally, I was inspired to create my own Currently Post for my blog.

    Thanks for sharing!
