Classroom Helpers, Blogging, Venturing... OH MY!

First, I worked on my classroom helper board and though it doesn't look like what it looked like in my head (last minute changes) I'm happy with it. Problem is, I can't think of what to call it! I thought "Fishing for Helpers", "Gold(fish) Helpers", "Waves of Good Help" (even though there are no waves), "School of Helpers" or "School of Workers"... but as fair as some of them are I feel like I could come up with better. Any ideas? (Some of the ideas above were posted as recommendations by friends on Facebook so I can't take all the credit).
Second, Hi, my name is Shana and I am a blogging addict. Holy crap, I've been spending the majority of my waking hours reading other teacher blogs. I've become instantly obsessed! Maybe it's because I'm stuck in bed, maybe it's cause I'm bored, I think it's just because I am extremely excited to finally be a teacher. I've always wanted to be a teacher, since I could remember, so this is like a dream come true. I'm sure some of you other teachers understand where I am coming from. Remember playing teacher with your dolls? Anyone? I did!
And finally, I've found a venture to pursue and I'm kind of excited! Okay, kind of is DEFINITELY an understatement. I saw another blogger post her store for a bag/accessory shop that I really liked looking at. I could definitely use some extra money so I think I am going to make this small investment and work on starting my own business. First year teaching and starting my own SMALL business all in one year? Hey, I can do it!

Yep, Shana Nicole Teaches, for sure!
