Good thing I enjoyed all of that free time when I didn't know what I would be doing this fall....because with only 5 weeks until I report back (4 until I can get in my room)...I have so much to do!!! haha!

I am lucky in that a friend of mine had 3rd last year and is letting me borrow her login for Reading Street so I can get the spelling lists and story sections ready for the first month of school. It feels good to be doing something! :)

Now I have to decide on a classroom theme, how I want to integrate Whole Brain teaching and get my total participation folders ready! So much to do!

I am finally going to have some things to share on Monday Made-it! :)

  1. At least you know where you'll be now and can start planning. I've been doing little bits here and there during nap time all summer. Looking forward to meeting with my team next week to talk over our year plan. Hopefully I can start arranging my room then too! The professor job sounded amazing. I'd love to do something similar but at this point in time I want to try teaching one course and still teaching .5 day K. In the future I'd love to transition more to higher ed, yet I really agree with your point that a practicing teacher makes a better professor than a PhD that hasn't been in the classroom for a long time.

    1. Yeah, I definitely think that having a practicing elementary teacher teach preservice teachers has its merits. Alas, I think that ultimately they decided to select a candidate who didn't necessarily need to face leaving their family for 9 months :)

  2. Congrats on 3rd grade! I am dying to know if you got the job at the college or not - either way it sounds like you'll get there eventually. Super exciting!

    I am your newest follower :) Come stop by if you get a chance!

    1. That's so sweet Lauren :) As far as I can tell, I did not get the position at the college. It would have been a super fun job but I am totally cool when them selecting someone else. I saw my hubby today for the first time in 5 days and realized I would have really missed his face if I was away from him for 5-6 weeks at a time! :)
