Woah! It has been AGES since I last blogged! These past 6 weeks have felt like a blur. I started a new teaching job in a new district. It has been amazing, overwhelming and nerves all rolled into one! Even though I am far from a first-year teacher, right now that is what I feel like! There is SO much to learn when you are hired by a new district. Have you felt this way too?
I was so lucky that I was given my keys to my classroom at the end of July. I had my ENTIRE classroom all over my house and garage. It looked like an episode of Hoarders…no joke! Once I had those keys I rented a U-haul and moved everything in! Here are some pictures of ALL my things unloaded.
I have been in a small box type classroom for the past 9 years so walking into THIS room was like HEAVEN!!! I even had a window….ooooooooooo. I was also beyond ecstatic about ALL those cabinets!! I had to supply my OWN storage in the past. I STILL do not have every cabinet filled up! Yippeeeee.
Starting August 1st I haven been in some type of district training learning all the ropes. I feel very lucky to be a part of where I am at and I am really looking forward to this coming school year.
These past few weeks though have been hard. It is hard to come in and absorb all that information that you are supposed to know and use. Am I right? I finally feel like I am starting to get into some kind of routine and my students are too.
I hope to get my classroom reveal post up this week so you can see my “home” This year. It really does feel like that too!
I hope that all of you are off to a great start if you are back in school and if you start in the next few weeks, best of luck to you!
