Summer Update

Hey y'all,
I'm so excited to share that I've finished my first year as a teacher! While I am teaching Summer School, I don't officially go back to school until the beginning of August.


During the summer, I am going to go ahead and do some planning for the upcoming year. We're implementing "A Leader in Me" as a school-wide initiative and I really want to be able to do it justice for my students in the fall. I am also be taking a class through a local university to apply to grad school (last class this year as I will be applying for Spring 2020 admission). My last super fun summertime update is that I will be blogging more! Summer School is only half days (until 12:15), and it's three weeks long. This is my only "obligation" time wise. My class is online so I can do it whenever I want to/have time.

Do y'all have any requests for blog posts? Fingers crossed I will be able to post at least 4 times a week, but I want to make sure y'all are interested in what I'm posting!

xx,
Lindsey

Nine Potential New Member Sorority Recruitment Tips

Hi y'all!

August is quickly approaching, which for many means its back to school time. For college students elsewhere, it also means recruitment season is here!

My school did a spring recruitment (aka January); however, many schools, especially in the south, do recruitment in August and September.

If you're going through recruitment, congratulations!

I went through recruitment in two different ways (both formal and the colonization process) and then on the sister side! I went through part of recruitment my freshman year spring, got sick and couldn't finish. However, it worked out for the best because I got to join Alpha Delta Pi through the colonization process in September of my sophomore year.

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Each house is different at every school. Did you hear about sorority XYZ at ABC University? Get that stereotype right out of your head. Every single house is different because different girls make up the chapter. I have friends that would t…

Welcome!

Hey!

Well, I'm finally doing it: committing to blogging. Again. I'm super excited to be jumping back into the blogging world after a hiatus. I attempted to blog under some other names, but nothing felt right. So, I figured my own name would be the best way to keep a blog that I loved. 

I'm Lindsey. I'm a 20-something elementary school teacher with a passion for sharing things about life. I originally started blogging back at the end of my senior year of high school, and continued through college. Post grad life made it hard to balance everything (mainly because I was working full time and going to school again). However, I know that I'm going to need this blog.
As of right now, I have accepted my first full time "big girl job" in the field I'm passionate about. I'm teaching 5th grade this year, and I'm so excited! Along with my first teaching job, I'm also going to be working in retail part time and I'm taking one grad class. 

I'm stil…
