My apologies to all for the lack of content and update on this blog. I had some minor, ok major, things going on in life and I just couldn’t keep up. I am happy to announce that I will be back in action committed to sharing thoughts, ideas, lessons, content, etc. on this blog. And I can’t wait to connect with other educators and/or just plain thoughtful people that can help me grow.
First, a little “me” update. I AM NO LONGER IN THE CLASSROOM! What??!! I know. It’s like I’m experiencing a sort-of-career-identity-crisis. It’s summertime and I’m not quite sure what to do with myself or where to begin preparing for this new role. (Perhaps, someone out there can offer words of advice.) I have accepted a position as an English Language Arts Instructional Coach for the district. What does that exactly mean, you ask…? Not quite sure yet. Job description is a work in progress as this is a pilot program. But from what I understand, I will basically be a teacher’s support system, a partner to aide in enhancing their greatness! Nothing evaluative about it. I truly hope to be an asset to teachers and relieve some of the constant stress they feel as they work tirelessly in the trenches.
Fingers crossed and I’ll keep you posted. Successes and failures to come, I’m sure.
Moving on from that topic, over the next couple of months my goal is to post lessons and projects from my last couple of school years. You know, the lessons that I learned a ton from that I made a mental note to post right away. And then I never did. Ya! Those ones.
I couldn’t help myself, but share some photos of my final Open House.
Sniff. It was a great ride, and who knows? I may return.
