{Teacher Talk Tuesday & Some News!}

I noticed that just recently I started seeing a lot of teaching blogs pop up on Instagram.
Little did I know, this little linky was floating around. So, I'm linking up with What the Teacher Wants! and Apples and ABC's.

Sign me up!
I love Instagram, I had an account when the app first came around and then started a new one for my Thirty-One business with some classroom photos here and there. I'm so excited to see so many classroom pictures on Instagram. I'm looking forward to linking up each week, even though we only have FOUR TUESDAYS LEFT. FOUR!!!
Go over and follow me: @riedmillersroom

Also... I am 99% sure that next year I will be a second grade teacher!
I am beyond excited. I love third grade, and really wish I could stay, but alas, I must move. I was the last one in! I'm headed down to second (same hallway FTW), so this summer I will be moving my classroom, working with a new team and getting into second grade mode.
I hope 2nd graders can handle me. 
One of my girls told me this week that I was one hard pickle. HA!
So... Michelle, be kind with those class lists. I'm a little worried about my experiences with first grade recess duty this year. :X

What are you all up to?
How are you getting ready for the end of the year?
Any advice for a new second grade teacher? I'm looking for awesome second grade blogs.

New Teacher Blog Tuesday!

Can I just say that the dreaded state test had taken over my life?
Our 3rd Grade LA test was Monday... We take the Math tomorrow, but my part is done.
I have to let it all go.
Most of my colleagues say now I should feel relieved because it's out of my hands, but CONFESSION: I feel out of control, because it's OUT OF MY HANDS!
My Principal said I'll feel better by the end of the week, we'll see!

Head over to Fun in 1st Grade because today I'm being featured on 
New Teacher Blog Tuesday!
So exciting...

Have a good week. I'm sure I'll be back soon now that THE TEST is over!
