Well, another year has come and gone, and we are all in store for some changes! I apologize for not posting since March, but there are only three of you that may or may not read, so I guess it's probably okay!
I believe I posted earlier that I will be making a job change this year, and I am extremely excited. I am moving to 8th Grade Reading/Language Arts, completing my two-year grant funded position at the elementary level. I have really enjoyed my time at the elementary level, my co-workers and my kiddos, but I am excited for something different. This is my third position in 5 years, and historically I have changed jobs every two years--hopefully this one will stick around for awhile!
Today is our last day of in-service before summer, and because I didn't have an actual classroom, I am entirely packed up and done for the day--at 9 am! I suppose I will have to keep myself busy for the next three and a half hours! I will manage, I am sure! ;-)
