Almost Back to School

| Monday, August 2
I'm officially back to school in a week, but for those of you who haven't heard (via my eight million tweets about it), I will not be returning to the middle school or 6th grade next week. Instead, I got a last minute transfer to the elementary school next door. I'm gonna be a

This week I'm gonna be packing up and moving all of my stuff to my new classroom across the parking lot.

One of the reasons I didn't post anything last week was because I was an anxious wreck and didn't want to give anything away until it was official. I had gotten a call from the principal of the elementary school on Friday, July 23 asking me if I'd be interested. I told her of course I would be. But then I had to play the waiting game of waiting for our school district's Human Resources department to call and officially offer me the job. I had to wait a WHOLE WEEK! Talk about nerve-wracking! But they did call last Friday while I was at a 5th grade Social Studies workshop.

Yeah, I spent a lot of last week going to curriculum workshops for 5th grade stuff as well, since I wanted to be prepared if (when) I got the call with the official transfer offer. Well, I'm off to see my new classroom today. I'm super excited because I am going into a 2-year-old building from a 45-year-old building! Better lighting, better space, cleaner, and I'm expecting a healthier environment for me. No more moldy, musty old school!

I'll keep you all updated on what's going on in the Great Classroom Move of 2010!

Congratulations! I hope your happier with 5th graders! I know I'm sooo excited to be out of teaching middle school!

Wow, congratulations! I remember that you wanted to teach younger kids, so that's great (though they're not all that much younger, I guess). And the fact that you're in a new building will be especially nice. Good luck with the new kids!

Congratulations! Do you now teach a whole mess of subjects? I loved my 5th grade teacher...hope you're as epically awesome as Mrs. York.

My fifth grade teacher was one of the most memorable teachers I ever had. And he was a geek.

Which means you're pretty well on your way to being a kick-ass 5th grade teacher already :)
