Getting Ready!

It's hard for me to find things to blog about over the summer, since most of what I share is what we are doing in our class! I have had a very productive summer-I cleaned out closets and my pantry. I read about 12 books. Recorded stories for my listening stations and stapled leveled readers. I feel like I got a lot done this summer.

If you follow me at all, you know my journey is going to continue at a new school this year. I had been teaching at my former school for 13 years so this was a big leap of faith for me! I was lucky enough to be able to get in and see my new class this past week and see what I'd have to work with.


The school is an environmental science magnet school and I am excited about incorporating that concept into our daily lessons. My principal has already approved my student book clubs, Student Council and a new club I'm going to implement this year for graphic novels. I have worked with him before and know that he is supportive and always puts students first-part of why I chose to go there.

It still feels surreal-doesn't quite feel like my school, my class-but I know I will get there. Nervous to meet my new teammates and colleagues, but excited to get in and get started on our year!

  1. I'm moving to a new position, and have been having some of the same feelings. I know it will be better once I get going with kids. Sara
