Benton High School Sophomore Cheerleaders 2012-2013

I was given the opportunity to photograph the Sophomore Cheerleaders for the Panther Football Program.  My favorite hobby is photography.  I am not a licensed professional or anything, so it is all for fun!

These girls are beautiful and I wish them the best of luck. I hope they enjoy their first year in high school.  GO PANTHERS!

Summer Reading

It's been a few weeks since I have been able to blog. (We do not have internet at our house) I will eventually be posting pictures from Jenny's Graduation party and some of my photography.  Life has just been so busy.

I know the saying is that teacher's get their summers off, but in reality they do not between workshops and preparing for the next year. Well, at least not first year teachers who are extremely excited! I last blogged that I was going to be teaching third grade in the fall, well I will be moving down to second and I am beyond excited!  I have been in second 3/4 of this past school year and now I get to officially teach it!

I've been browsing a lot of teachers blogs this summer and they have given me so many ideas and motivation for the fall. I came upon a few blogs that talk about summer reading for teachers and I have tons of books that have been recommended and given to me, so I have decided to challenge myself to read 30 books in 30 days! Crazy- right?! Well a few of the 30 are not educational but I haven been meaning to read for awhile. For instance, The Hunger Games, which I haven't had the time to read yet.

I have always loved reading, and I am the type of person that I start a book and will be up until 3:00 am to finish could be an interesting 30 days! I'm blogging about this to keep myself accountable. I'm on day 5 and so far I'm on track! So my question for you all is what are you reading right now and what books do you recommend?
