As the title says it, I’m “back in the saddle again.” Due to some budget cuts and increasing class sizes, our school needed to add a fourth 5th grade teacher and my tech position was cut, therefore, I am the new 5th grade teacher.
I’ve been asked countless times if I am excited or not. My truthful answer is that I’m getting there. When the possibility first came about a few months ago, I was very excited. As time went on and the possibility wavered back and forth, I became frustrated, and the excitement waned. About two weeks ago, I found out this was a definite move. The excitement is slowly returning.
Last week we did a big room shift with a total of 4 rooms being affected. I have been moving into my room and getting settled since Friday. I am working on where to put everything, how many tables I need, how to decorate, and all of those other fun decisions that come from moving into a new room.
One of the things I am most looking forward to is the opportunity to work with the students on tech projects. I have so many ideas of things to do. I will have to keep you all posted on all of the things we try.
One other very important thing to mention: We are out for summer 🙂
