Back to School, Back to School...

...to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school. Back to school. Back to school. Well, here goes nothing.

Name that movie...jk, but seriously.

So I (Mary) started my job today!  I was SO excited to finally do what I came up here for. Don't get me wrong, 3 weeks of lounging around was great, but it gets really boring after a while. Anyway, for those who don't know, I work as a voice teacher for two middle schools in Plano I.S.D. Once a week, each child gets to miss 25 minutes of their choir class to come have a one-on-one lesson with me.  Technically, I started last Tuesday, but I actually started teaching today.  Last Tuesday all the voice teachers came in to talk to the choirs & encourage kids to sign up for voice lessons.  Here's my outfit(sorry it's blurry):

Dress: Antonio Melani
Cardigan: Gap
Leopard Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: Antonio Melani

When I got to school, they had a folder for me to collect money from my kids:

I met my Tuesday kids today & I'm OBSESSED!!!  They are so precious & eager to learn!  Were we that little when we were in the 6th grade?  The girls were all super excited, but I could tell the boys were nervous.  It was still a great day though!  We just talked over how lessons will work & then talked about ourselves to get to know each other better...& then they sang!  They were all SO talented!  The 6th graders were adorable!  They all turned bright red when I asked them to sing, & giggled their way through lip trills, roller coasters, & Owl ooooh's (those are warm ups fyi).  My 7th & 8th graders had taken lessons before so they were used to singing in front of people.  I was just so impressed with the talent in these kids!  It will be so fun to encourage them & help build their confidence!  I feel so blessed to be able to get to know these kids one-on-one & help them develop their natural talents!

My lunch for the day:
Turkey, Provolone, roma tomato, spring mix, & mustard sandwich.
Baby carrots
String cheese
Blue corn chips & guacamole

& my outfit:
Pants: J. Crew
Shirt, Cardigan, Belt: Forever 21
Loafers: Steve Madden

CAN'T WAIT FOR DAY 2!!!  Off to the gym now!
