1. March snow days!
2. I quit my teaching job at Spring Break.

I do have to say my students gave me the two most amazing surprise going away parties and I bawled and bawled like a baby. Apparently the kids worked SO hard all week to secretly prepare them for me! I couldn't believe the effort they put into it and it was definitely an amazing wrap up to my 4 years of teaching.
3. Real estate, here I come!

4. Product Overhaul
I'm working hard on updating all my products because I am totally OCD, plus as I continue to create I continue to learn and improve. I recently redid my best selling Thesis Statement Task Cards to make them ink-saving black and white cards.

5. New Products
I have product creation ADD. I'll work a little on one product, get bored or get an inspiration, and work on another. I have a folder with I think at least twenty just started, halfway done, and nearly at the end products. One day they will see the light of day! Because of this ADD, I haven't been able to crank out products as quickly as I had hoped. However, I have made a couple of new ones this month: A FREE "Film as Literature" graphic organizer for any movie, and a specific one with detailed answer key for the 2011 film version of Jane Eyre. The freebie would be great to leave with a sub or to use during the eventual end of the year movie time.
