As my niece in KY would say "Shew! I ain't been here in forever!"
It has been CRAZY this year! So much paper work and I am at the point where I am about to SCREAM! Its all good though. The worst part about being a new "older" teacher is understanding all the paperwork and even creating more for myself. It all comes down to student achievement and how can I help those that are not cutting it and push those who are even further.
Had a "duh" moment today, usually these are called "ah-ha" moments but I call them duh because hindsight is 20/20 after all. So thinking about my 7th graders and realized that I have to put the "mommy" in me away and be drill sergeant teacher. After 2.5 years I am really seeing the difference between 7th and 8th grade.
I love having them for two years but gosh it is hard!
Going to shoot for blogging once a week.
