This year has been full of opportunities. I have wanted to blog-trust me I would love to be candid and tell you about my daily classroom. But legally it is best for me not to say anything other than I have an extremely challenging child. I've been through a lot already this year and each day find myself saying "Serenity now!" in my head. (Seinfeld friends you will find this funny.) I've learn to deal with unpredictable, ignore to the best of my ability, cry it out (almost everyday), and how much patience one really does need to be a teacher. As I look for the positives in each day and try to de-stress myself it has been hard to blog.
Another opportunity this year is that our principal is retiring. Her last official day is November 30th! She is leaving for personal family reasons and I understand that but at the same time feel extremely nervous about the schools near future. A new principal will be placed in our school the second week of December. The new principal will have big shoes to fill and will hopefully be great addition to our staff.
I have just started my Thanksgiving break and I'm finally relaxed and thinking about the joys of family and this holiday season. I hope that things will get easier in my classroom with time and that it will lead to more blogging.
Over this restful break I will be reflecting on what I'm thankful for and trying to create new, innovative materials for the month of December.
Hope all my bloggy friends are doing well! I'm just now catching up all on the wonderfulness of this half of the school year!
