Teacher Tuesday (on Wednesday)!

Two posts in one day?  I must be crazy, right?  I'm actually just letting Carson nap while we wait for Nick to get home because we're going to church tonight to get information on Carson's baptism!

I realize this link-up is a day late, but I figured I'd do it anyway since my blog has been lacking in the education department lately!!   For those of you that don't know, I've accepted a new position for next school year.  Drumroll please......

I will no longer be a traveling teacher!  Wahoo!  This takes so much stress off!  I'm going to be working back in the building where I taught during the 2010/2011 school year and I'm SO excited because I'll be working with a great team!  I'll no longer be teaching kindergarten and reading intervention, I'll now be FIRST GRADE!  I'm really sad to leave my old positions and especially sad to leave my kindergarten team but I'm very excited at the same time!  I have a lot of work to do this summer to prepare for the new adventure but I feel so blessed and excited!

I'm linking up with Teaching in High Heels. If you haven't checked out her blog, do it NOW! She has tons of great ideas :)

I have a lot of teaching goals for this summer.  I figure if I write them down, maybe I'll hold myself more accountable :)

  • Pack up my TWO classrooms from last year and move it all to my NEW classroom for next year!  (This will be time consuming seeing that Carson will be with me, but I need to get it done)!
  • Start deciding how I want to set up/decorate my classroom.  This is always fun for me and it will be fun to decorate a new space. 
  • Start pinning some 1st grade ideas.  Since I'm moving into a new grade level this year, I'll be teaching a whole new curriculum.  This is fun and scary at the same time, but I'm excited to get new ideas put into place!
I'm keeping my goal list fairly short b/c I know the things on my list will take a while and even when I'm done, I'll have 8 more things on the list.  That's just the way I am! 

If you have ANY ideas for a first grade classroom, send them my way!  I'm excited to start a new journey for next year.  :)
