This just in… as of the beginning of June, Ms. Galloway has been given the opportunity to take the bull by its horns and will be teaching second/third grade all by herself!
I am thrilled to announce that I will FINALLY be doing what I love and in charge of planning everything 😀
For the past two years, I was an assistant where I would teach when the leads were absent – last year, I taught two subjects year round and this year, I only taught consistently for a few months. It got very monotonous and by Spring Break, I needed to leap into having my own classroom. After many (many) applications, tens of interviews, and a few demo-lessons, I was picked..woo!
The end of the school year and applying to jobs is in part why I didn’t blog in June. Since summer started, I have been lesson planning and organizing/setting up my classroom…I love being able to say that :p I am going away on vacation at the end of this week and won’t be back until a few days before school starts in August – since this is my first official year teaching, I want to make sure that I feel prepared and comfortable. These trips were planned in advance and I also don’t want to stress about work while traveling.
Now let’s share some pictures! My classroom theme is MUSIC and Patches makes a few appearances (as you would expect ha).
I plan to put the finishing touches on the bulletin boards this week, and there will be many posts to come!
