Take a close look at the books I’m showing you.
Do you notice anything?
Most of you should know that I’ve taught kindergarten for the past year. I never in my life thought I would teach kindergarten. In fact, it was the last grade I wanted to teach when I was looking for a job. Low and behold though, it was the job that became available at the school I desperately wanted a job at.
After a year of learning about a grade I knew nothing about, I ended up enjoying it more than I ever thought I would. The babies were fun to work with, and I learned so much from them.
This year will hold another kind of year though. I won’t be building on kindergarten knowledge anymore. Instead, I’ll be learning all about the second graders! That’s right. You read it right. Second grade.
After thinking about the move for a little while and soaking it all in, I remembered how much I had wanted to teach second grade to begin with. One year ago that was the job I wanted, but it was no where to be found.
I have to be honest. I’m very excited about going to a grade that I had wanted to teach to begin with, but I’m a little nervous. Change makes me a nervous Nelly! I’ll make it just fine though. Help from others and lots of hard work this summer on my part will hopefully make it a smooth transition!
Like the song says…
A change would do you good!
Wish me luck! I’ll need it!
Changing rooms and preparing materials plus grad work and more weddings than you can believe = one busy girl!
P.S. Pray for my daddy! He’s having surgery on his back tomorrow!
