Tried it Tuesday with Instagram

I am linking up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper


My tried it is actually Instagram.
I take a LOT of pictures in my classroom!
But, I am probably one of the few people left who actually use a CAMERA!

So I played around with Instagram today to post pics from our 
AMAZING pond dedication.

One of our beloved teachers passed away earlier this year.
Some of her best friends at school came up with the idea to create this
  beautiful GORGEOUS mosaic hummingbird mural.

It was designed by our incredibly talented art teacher 
and fashioned out of love by Pammy's friends.
The picture is beautiful, but it is breathtaking in person.
The mural was put up in an area of the school known as the pond.
It has now been renamed "Pammy's Pond" 
and dedicated in loving memory to our friend Pam Terry.

Here are some more pics of the pond area.

There are fish, turtles, a frog and a few other "visitors."
Hummingbird feeders are hung all over the area.

You can definitely feel Pam's spirit there as well as the love of her friends.
What a way to keep her memory alive!

You can find me on Instagram here.

Post your Teacher Talk Tuesday Pictures and link up at What the Teacher Wants.
I am having a ball checking out everyone's fun pics!

Tomorrow is a FIELD TRIP 
and then FIELD DAY on Thursday!
I'm gonna be one tired teacher come Friday, but hey
only 16 1/2 days left!


  1. That mosaic is beautiful, what a lovely tribute and memorial. I too take pictures with a camera - no smartphone yet...

  2. Wow. That is a great mural and pond. Is that right outside the front of your school?
    That is just an excellent way to keep someone's memory alive.

    1. Matt, it is actually just outside one of our classrooms. We are an outside school, and it is in the middle of the school.

  3. Thank you for sharing! AND, for your kind words! ♥

    1. Melissa, I am just so impressed with what you have created!

  4. What a beautiful way to pay tribute to your fellow teacher. I use a camera too and am really in the Dark Ages...I don't have a smartphone! My husband and I are too cheap to upgrade and I can do everything I need to on my laptop!
