Looking In (9/189)

Today's Photo189 is a pretty awesome picture taken from outside looking in. While my team teacher, Mrs. Desiree Peden, was reading this month Book of the Month, I snuck out and took a picture from the window looking in. It is a priceless photo.

Recess (8/189)

Today I took the sweetest picture of the entire second grade kids playing at recess. They looked so happy and joyful.
(since the photo's subject is kiddos, the picture will not be posted here)

Chaos (1/189)

Today is the first day of my 2010-2011 contract year. Yipee! We all get a brand new school too! That means I have to move in boxes, unpack boxes, organize my room, and get it ready for kids. As you can see from the picture, I have boxes moved in and am in the process of putting things away. Wish me luck!

I am shocked at the amount of people who have taken on the Photo189 Project.  They all seem as pumped as I am to get this started.  It even has a Twitter hashtag! #photo189

Here is a list of the blogs/websites that I have found so far: by Angela K. Haynes

If you have one or have seen another, let me know and I will add it to this site.

Get Ready For The School Year!

Here is the idea:
Have you heard of the "Photo 365 Project"? (
I am going to do "Photo 189".  This will document my school year.  I will not post pictures of students without parental permission.  I will blur the face of the students or describe the picture instead of posting it.  I realize this is not ideal, but my students' privacy comes first.  I am wondering how I can let my students in on the excitement.  I only have one camera.  Should I check out one from my school for the entire year?  Another option is to let them use my iPhone to take the pictures they want to contribute.  My students usually have access to my iPhone for all sorts of educational reason, so this would not be a revolutionary idea for me.
