Summer classes for grad school have officially started as of yesterday! I am really excited to be with my cohort again and to begin completing my LAST semester of grad school classes! Needless to say I am already up to my ears with reading and assignments that need to be completed, but I clearly decided to take a break from that (while I still can). Plus, I have some updates I really wanted to share.
Let’s start off by saying that I knew that my first year of teaching was going to be jam packed with many “firsts” for me. Well let me just say that on Sunday afternoon I got to experience not one, but two “firsts.”
To start off, I received an e-mail from my principal stating that he needed to speak with me about some updates but that I was not to worry. So what was the first thing I did? Yes, worry. So I e-mailed him back and said I was available to speak that afternoon. So here are my two new “firsts.”
- He informed me that they needed to move some teachers around to different grade levels and that was going to effect the grade level I was offered. There went all of my fun second grade stuff I have found AND the name of this blog. Oh well, lesson learned on naming blogs… However, I decided to be completely optimistic about this news and asked what grade level they would be placing me in at this point.
- Well… I will now be teaching FIRST grade next year! Okay okay, maybe this goes with the statement above, but I couldn’t resist the play on words. I am actually really excited to teach first grade and know that I will still have a great first year teaching!
