I got a job!

I know, I's been a while since I have posted, but it has been with good reason. Last Friday I was offered a 5th grade teaching job at a Title-1  international baccalaureate elementary school 5 minutes from where I live. As some of you may know, I was teaching 4th grade at a Title-1 school about an hour from where I live. I took the chance on not renewing my contract last year with the hopes of finding a more ideally located teaching position. At first, I did not get a job and was subbing, but last Friday my risk was rewarded with a new job! I am very excited, and also kinda nervous (I start next Monday and it's already second nine weeks). I have also never taught at an international baccalaureate school, but I don't think it will be a problem. Luckily, I am feeling pretty prepared thanks to the fact that I was keeping up to date with Common Core, and designing lessons and products for classrooms. Anyways, because of this great news, I have been very busy and will probably remain so the rest of the year. I will begin reposting with more frequency after next week though. Plus, now I can make more posts that have pictures of my classroom and the activities, so  the blog will only get better! In addition, I got a new camera, so I will have better quality pictures to add to my blog to. I am very excited. Be prepared for a revamped and better blog in a couple weeks.
