Now onto my topic for today, SHOES! 
I’m taking a break from the normal blogging topic about teaching and decided to share with you a little bit about why my blog title is Mrs. G’s Kindergarten in Heels.  If it’s not evident, I love buying new shoes.  I love the way a cute pair of heels can complete an outfit.   Heels are my favorite finds but when it comes to shoes I do not discriminate…I love them all.  Flip flops, sneakers, boots and heels all have a place in my heart and on my feet.  When I moved in August to my new house my closet space was downsized dramatically.  It was heartbreaking but I managed to pull through and get rid of some old shoes/clothes that I no longer wear.  My husband was very proud of me that day.  
Here are some of my favorite keepers…

And yes, I actually wear all of these shoes to school.  These are just a few of my favorites, of course there are plenty more not pictured.  My back to school shopping usually starts at Target and Wal-Mart but it always ends with a few new pair of “back to school” shoes.  And yes, that is a tattoo on my foot.  I thought if I was going to get a tattoo the foot is the perfect place for me.  I think it goes well with my shoe collection.  The boots are my favorite winter wear; unfortunately I do not get to wear them often because I live in FLORIDA!  Nevertheless, I will tell you the first cold day we have here in sunny Florida I am bringing out my fuzzy boots!!!!!
Everyone always asks me “How can you teach Kindergarten students all day in those shoes?”  Really most of my shoes are pretty comfortable but I will choose style over comfort most of the time.  Do you want to know my secret?????  I have a permanent pair of flops (during those hotter school days) and slippers (during the colder school days) underneath my desk.  I usually slip these on during my lunch and special area breaks.  It's really no longer a secret because most of my co-workers see me at some point during breaks and after school in my slippers. 

Now on to free stuff!!

  3. I love wearing my heels to school. I always get comments about wearing them but they are soooo comfortable to me, and I am used to them. I never thought about taking slippers to school. Maybe I will do that also. Keep them in my closet just in case I need them someday. :)
