I'm only 3 days away from starting a new year in 3rd grade! Teaching, like my career in basketball, comes naturally for me...but the inevitable butterflies that I used to get before my games are here just the same for teaching. I know I can do it...I'm prepared...I'm pumped...but those nerves that used to hit the hardest right during the National Anthem are here now. I've decorated my room and I'm slowly getting a grip on the curriculum, but the same thought gets me each year at this time. I will impact lives this year. My words and actions need to be chosen carefully because they have such tremendous power to hurt or heal...criticize or praise...discourage or inspire. Take a look into my room and i'll get back with you once the kiddos get here!
Well...I'm not exactly sure what I'm getting myself into by moving to 3rd grade, but I know that I am EXCITED! I think that there will be many opportunities to stretch me and help me grow as a teacher. We will also have lots of new technology which is just AWESOME! I will do my best blog frequently...but you just never know! Happy creating and educating!
After 4 years of 1st grade I'm moving on up 3rd...and pumped about it! I love to create lessons, projects and curriculum. I also love to be techy...and crazy. Yes, I will frequently dress up as characters in our stories or super heroes...just get used to it. :)
