My fellow teachers, do you own a domain name?
I am thinking of setting up a website with my own domain name and don’t want to include a grade in the domain name because a) I don’t know what grade I will be teaching and b) I want to use the same name when and if I switch grades in the future.
Next week is my last week with the kindergarteners…
It is going to be bittersweet. I am sad to say goodbye to these kids that have become a part of my everyday life. I will always remember the silly/cute things that they said or did. The “light bulb” moments when they understood a new concept or became more fluent in their reading. The thought that I had something to do with that, I helped build the foundation for their future schooling.
But I am ready to move on and see what the future holds. I am ready for my own classroom and the journey to it.
I thank all of the students and teachers I have worked with to help me grow as a teacher, but it is almost time to remove the “student” out of my title and just be “teacher.”
That moment, when you are overworked and under-appreciated and don’t think you have the energy or passion left to go on, remember that there is at least one student who relies on you, even if they do not show it. Keep on going, just for that one…because when you are teaching, it isn’t for you, it is for them. They need you.
That moment when you become so consumed with writing lesson plans that you forget to eat…
My education peeps!
I just found out a recruiter from my local district is coming to my university in a couple of weeks and that is huge because they haven’t done that in years! They are finally looking to hire! I just don’t know what to expect, what should I bring? What should I be prepared to show? Resume? Portfolio? Any input would be much appreciated!
I need some input.
I am planning a sequencing lesson for my kindergarteners where they are going to sequence events in a book but I want an introductory activity before I have them sequencing things from books. Perhaps a lesson to do before? Any ideas?
I taught the whole day today!
8 hours with 24 5-year-olds is tiring but oh so worth it! I feel so comfortable in the classroom now and the students have taken to me very quickly with my teaching style.
I was recently described as “nurturing, but can also discipline” That means so much! Classroom management is what I work on a lot because if you can’t control the class then there is no learning going on so when I got that compliment I was so happy!
Hope everyone is having a good week.
Tomorrow is Thursday…which means the following day is Friday. :)
