Sorry I've signed off for a while, guys.
I had to charge my computer.
In all honesty, I didn't know how to start this first post after what's probably been months (or perhaps even years). Nothing like some humor to get us started!
I guess there've been quite a few changes since my last post. Since lists always seem to work well for me, I'll go ahead and start with a list.
My oldest is going to be starting middle school this next year.
My youngest is going to be in 2nd grade.
I will be teaching my first year as a 2nd grade teacher, and it will be after a 6-years-long preschool position (which happens to be the ONLY grade I've taught to date).
I now have four nieces and nephews.
I am single as a slice of kraft cheese.
I am going on my second year of teaching kindergarten catechism classes at my church.
I'll go into more detail in all of the above mentioned areas, I'm sure.
BUT right now, I can't even begin to describe how excited I am about this literature class I am taking for my licensure renewal. It's absolutely so much fun. Somewhere between showing up at the class this morning and getting home at 530 or so, I've just been on this huge, nerdy, excited, giddy, reading kick!
We get to read all sorts of books, talk about books, share books, and it's brilliant.
I'm learning new websites, new great reads, new resources. I'm just getting all jazzed about teaching reading next year!
