Old School New School Linky Party

Swersty at Swerstys Swap Shop is having a fun linky party! She is asking bloggers to show pictures from their first year of teaching and compare it to a current picture.  It motivated me to dig out some old pictures, and boy did I have a good laugh.
Cowboy Day was a huge tradition before I joined my first school district, so I was forced to carry on this rootin-tootin event.  I remember that I did make the most of it, and had the Kinders act out the words to "Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys" as part of the show.  LOL!
Does anyone remember that the bows were popular back in the day?  At least I had sort of a cute bulletin board in the back.  It needs something maybe less white space!!
The kids were adorable - that much hasn't changed.  I really can't play the piano.  I put two hands on the keyboard to make it look good, but only knew enough notes to get by on one hand.  Now I just ring a bell to get their attention.
 I didn't have a picture of myself with this year's class because I was taking all the pictures! This group was adorable, too! 

Can you find some old school/new school pictures to join in on the fun?


  1. What fun! I love the old pictures! Girls in dresses and tights!

    1. I couldn't resist posting that picture - the girls looked so sweet!

      Thanks for the comment Reagan - I feel like a "celebrity" blogger has stopped by! :)

  2. Love the pictures! I'm glad I found you! I'm a third grade teacher too! Stop by my blog some time!
