Conferences and Teacher Survival Kit!

Tonight is our last conference night. Yay! I survived my first parent teacher conferences!! I don't know why I was so nervous meeting the parents. They were all so kind. My favorite comments were when they would say they hear all about Miss Disbrow at home and how I'm their favorite teacher. Ha! Melts my heart <3

I feel that you have to dress a little more professional for conferences because you want to make a good impression. This is what I wore to conferences last week. You can never go wrong with black and white. It's so classy and professional!

Lauren Conrad Collared Bow blouse from Kohl's similar to this for $32.99.
Black pants from TJ Maxx similar to these for $17.80.
Black bow flats from JustFab similar to these for $20.99.


My New Teacher Reception on Monday night was so fun! They had delicious food and the goodie bags we got were AWESOME! They included, post-its, paperclips, bulletin board borders, stickers, glue stick, candy bag, mints and tic tacs, Staples gift card, Ice Cream gift card, and a "Teacher Survival Kit" It was so nice of them to do that for us!

  5. How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it. These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

    Survival Things Our Great Grandfathers Did Or Built Around The House.

    Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets...

    So I really can't think of anyone more qualified in sharing real-life survival lessons than people who lived through times like these.
