So I did get a position!
I’m my schools lead ELA teacher.
They are big mad. Bigly
Two more school days left! Enjoy your holiday weekend.
I start my summer camp and it's only a four day. I am excited!!!
This whole school year can go and kick some rocks.
Dealing with a four year old who spent 25 minutes chanting “I wanna kill myself” is exhausting.
16 days left.
Reached the finish line!!! 7th grade didn't beat me!!!
Four days until testing starts and five days of testing, those days are half days! Thank you Lord!
The 8th graders were awfully cuddly today....well for 8th graders anyway.
I think they feel some kind of way about the end of the school year being near.
So I just reviewed the calendar in our staff meeting today. We have 7 more days left, 3 of them are half days. When this school year started I didn't know that I would ever see the end and yet it's here. So excited!!
On another note, do Shasha are you teaching 8th grade and college? How are you managing that?
That's something I've been looking into.
Yeah. I'm an adjunct at 2 different schools. Managing the 2 hasn't been too bad. I have to be really diligent about using my planning time for school related things (especially if I have to set up for a lab activity the following day) and I use whatever down time I have during the evening for any college related stuff.
My first semester teaching was probably the most overwhelming because I had none of my teaching related materials in place.I was spending hours trying to get those together, find my teaching groove, and stay on top of grading. Second semester and beyond have been a breeze.
Soo.....one of the students at my school saw me at the Kendrick Lamar concert on Friday
Yesterday, the 8th graders had their formal. I had several students run up to me to give me a hug and take pictures. They all looked like young adults! I almost cried. With every group that I teach, I find myself doing this. I will be interesting to see the type of people they will eventually become.
So I will be transitioning into an IB teacher for the upcoming school year. I am quite excited, but I wish I didn't have to move in order to fulfill the position. Oh well, I'm excited and looking forward to the change and challenge.
Toying around with getting a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction....I think it will make me a more competitive candidate for the college positions (especially the teaching focused institutions).
I just started an Ed.S program for Curriculum and Instruction this summer. It is a one-year program. I plan on eventually going the Admin route, but am also interested in curriculum review, design, and consulting.
Welp, graduation is tomorrow. Then there's one half day and the kids are gone. We have another week of inservice, but I'm am so ready to not have to monitor behavior for a few months.
What school are you doing your program through?
Berry College. It is a blended/hybrid online program that runs from Summer 2018-Summer 2019. We will have to meet a couple of times during the Fall and Spring semesters at a local high school.
Last day of exams and I’m beyond happy! I’m ready for a break! My part time job and summer planning are all I have planned other than a few family vacations and work trips.
They're gone. I'm sad to see them leave, but oh so happy to see summer before I'm reunited with my precious babes again. I teach 5 - 8, so there were a lot more see you laters than goodbyes today.
Just 10 more days I have to be at work. Counting down...
Do you have your masters? what do you teach at the colleges?
5 more days for me 4 of them (1/2 days) with students....then Saturday is graduation...I always shed a few tears of joy.
PhD. I teach Bio 101 and Microbiology
