Artwork for my Classroom


IMGP2181 Fancy Nancy, Duck, and Skippyjon Jones

I wanted to add a little splash to my classroom, so I made some fun artwork to hang behind my desk.  Canvases were on sale at Michaels, so I bought a few.  I found some images online and projected them on a canvas that I had taped to my whiteboard.  I traced with pencil and then colored in with crayon.  Crayon works surprisingly well on canvas!  My students say “Wow!  You made those?”.  I told them I just traced and colored, but they were still impressed.

End of the Year Luncheon


Amber Lehner, Andrea Robertson, Marcy Johnson

It’s a tradition that we go to a buffet for lunch on the last day of school, since it’s a half day.  This year we went to the buffet at the Silverton.  I am grateful to have such fabulous coworkers!

Jenny and I treated ourselves to the famous frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity 3, located in front of Caesar’s Palace.  (Don’t worry, we shared this delicious treat!)  We then strolled through the conservatory at the Bellagio admiring what a fantastic job they do each season.  It was a nice afternoon out despite the Las Vegas heat:)
