A Day in the Life of a Techie!

So I am FINALLY getting around to this great linky party put together by Mrs. Klohn over at Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher! I am really excited! I teach technology as well as help serve as the troubleshooter for my school so my day's a little different from the normal teachers. So let's get it going!
5:30AM-My alarm goes off for the first time (Hit the snooze-well slide it on my android powered phone)
5:45am-My alarm goes off for the second time (Hit the snooze)
6:00am-My alarm goes off for the third time and IF it's a good day I finally get up.
6:10ish am-Shower and get ready (Depending on whether I straighten my hair or not this can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes)
6:45am-Heading out the door--in a rush of course
6:55-7:20am-Hang out with my mom in her room and put together the Good Morning Show and finally put my makeup on (because if you haven't already noticed I DEFINE the word procrastinate!)
7:25-7:50am-Breakfast Duty (Greet the lovelies as they enter in for a yummy  edible school breakfast)
7:55am-Play the Good Morning show over the airwaves of NMES and get the lab up and running
8:00-10:00am-Usually this is my planning/troubleshooting/webmastering/yearbooking/whatever my principal wants me to do time. (On Thursday's, however, I have 2 first grade classes that take up this time.)
10:00-11:30am-Guided Reading with my good friend Kristy Cozart (Love this!) (Except on Wednesday's, when I have 2 second grade classes)
11:30-12:00pm-Scarf down lunch while again planning/troubleshooting/webmastering/yearbooking/whatever my principal wants me to do time. (Except on Tuesday's when I have the Cross Cat class at 11:45)
12:00-2:20pm-Various classes on various days. (I have 1 hour a week with 4th and 5th grade and 1 hour every other week with K-3)
2:30-3:30pm-Troubleshooting and fixing any problems I didn't finish throughout the day, except on Wednesday's and Thursday's I meet with my wonderful technology club, the Techno Cats (32 4th and 5th graders).
3:30-Until I finally leave I try to get ready for the next day, but usually end up talking to other staff members and get nothing done.
After school I do various things throughout the week including Subway and Bojangles night for the school, choir practice at my church on Wednesday's and teaching dance from 6:45-9 on Thursdays. In between I am finishing up my Bachelors in Elementary Education online.
So there you have it! A day in the life of a techie! Nothing too special. Going through the day it doesn't seem as crazy as when I write type it.

  1. WOW! You sure have a busy life! And you still manage to change up your blog design and have snow flakes falling out of the blog sky.

    How great that you teach at the same school as your mom!
