I have some exciting news to share with everyone. First, I am finished with my Master's degree!! I will be moving out of Raleigh this weekend. It is very bittersweet but I do have something amazing to look forward to....a new job! That's right, after all the interviews I finally was able to pick between a few different positions and chose to take 6th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies at a school near my home. I have been waiting to have my own classroom for years now and finally the time has come. Teachers go back on August 20th so I still have a few weeks to start planning and do some professional development. Here are a few things that I would like to try to get done before the start of the school year.
1. Take a vacation! As happy as I am to get to start planning for my classroom I really need to take a break for anything to do with school even if it is just for a weekend. I am hoping to go to Dollywood sometime in the next few weeks.
2. Find some easy but tasty lunch recipes. I don't want to eat cafeteria food every day and I definitely don't want a sandwich or frozen dinner, so I'm going to be searching Pinterest for some lunch ideas I can take to school.
3. Read for fun. I haven't had any time this Summer to read the books I have been wanting to read so I look forward to that. I still haven't finished The Hunger Games!
I plan on changing the name of my blog now since I am no longer a future special educator and will have my special education degree. Although I'm not teaching all students with disabilities, I will be teaching an inclusion language arts class that I am looking forward to. If anyone has any blog name ideas, let me know! Hopefully I will find time to keep everyone updated on my first full year of teaching.
