It's been a very long while since I blogged last...a VERY long while!
I was starting to feel like I didn't have much more to say that hadn't already been said, so I took a break...that break lasted much longer than I thought it would, but none-the-less, I am back at it.
Since I blogged last, I no longer teach 5th grade. I am actually no longer a classroom teacher at all! Last January (right about now), I transitioned out of the classroom and into to role of a specialist teacher. My district opened up a new special last year...STEM!!! What that means is I get to see EVERY student in my school once a week for 45 minutes. When I say every student, I mean every student! I get the KKnights (our pre-K students), our ASD students and our normal gen. ed. students K-5. That brings a whole new set of issues I never expected, which I'll map out in future posts.
While it was a very difficult decision (especially with the switch coming mid year), it was 100% the right choice for me. I absolutely love what I do, I mean who wouldn't love playing all day long?!?
I've now been in my position for 1 year...and I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing 😂, and that got me to thinking, last time I felt like this was when I started flipping my classroom. One of the things that was the most beneficial for me was to write about the process.
IF you are no longer interested in reading about my journey (as it's taken a very different path), I totally understand. If you know someone who you think might be interested in learning with me, please forward this blog on to them 😀
Much love and it's good to be back.
