Holy moly, has it really been 10 months since my last post?!
I looked back at my last post and noticed that it was October of last year, which is when I started my long term assignment teaching fourth graders. When I was offered the assignment, I was nervous and stressed, but looked at it as a wonderful learning experience (when I had my own classroom, it was for kindergarten). Since that day, I was on full speed, organizing, planning, and pretty much everything else I needed to do for the kiddies, which explains the lack of blog posts.
I have to say, that teaching this fourth grade class was one of the best experiences of my life. There were many stressors, but it was all worth it. I had my own class again and the most amazing grade level co-workers. No joke. Since I started in October, I swear, I felt lost, but they helped me without hesitation, were there when I needed to vent, and pretty much all of the above in what you would want in awesome co-workers. I don't know what I would've done without them. While working, whenever someone asked me how work was, I could never answer without saying how awesome my co-workers were. I was very lucky.
So, thank you, to the wonderful people who helped me more than you know.
