Possible New Adventures & Changes Ahead


Me, 2nd grade
have wanted to teach since I was little girl and it is all I have ever wanted to do.  Teaching is all I love everything about teaching. Setting up the classroom, planning lessons, reviewing student work, and sharing each day with eager (mostly) happy students. I am equally blessed in that I have an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G third grade team and administration.

My interview is Friday and while I would love this job, I know that I won't be disappointed to get to stay in my classroom and teach full-time next year. The possibilities are endless and new things may be coming my way but in any case, next year will be a blast. It always is.

What is something you would like to venture out to try? I would love to read your thoughts in the comments below.
