M is for.....

I made this for my great  niece who love to cook, to read and all things frilly. I did not have a pattern and the fabric was mostly pieces from the stash. I was really happy how it turned out. Isn't it great when things actually become the same or better than when they were in your head! That is how this turned out. I had been thinking about a ruffly apron for a while and then it translated exactly how I wanted and she was thrilled. Yippee!

I am mid-way into my second week of student teaching. For the last five years I have worked as a para in our local school district and loved it. It is a public school. My student teaching is at a Montessori school. Thanks to blogging I know a little about Montessori and Waldorf methodologies. However, in no way did they prepare me for the difference in teaching style compared to public ed. I feel a little like a fish out of water. But as any fish worth their scales knows, you have to jump back in if want to survive. And that is what I am trying to do. I find the learning in this environment so exciting and so student orientated. I hope to share some of what I am experience here from time to time as I learn right along with the students!

Adorable apron! That is the BEST feeling when a project turns out just as you had imagined, congrats! :)

Good luck with your student teaching, I hear it can be difficult but I'm sure you'll do great!
