I am admitting defeat with this blogging challenge. Loved the prompts and wanted to do it, but it wasn't meant to be.
Two weeks left of summer vacation and I am really excited to get back to school. Am I the only weird teacher out there that misses school when its out? I really love the challenge and excitement of the school year. Last year flew by and I am looking forward to my second year of 5th and 6th grade. I am also excited and a little nervous to work with a brand new in house instructional coach this year. This will be a new experience as well and I am hoping to learn a lot from her!
Yesterday I attended a workshop on analyzing student work. Very informative and the workshop is part of a series taking place this year. The best part was making connections with other teachers in my grade level. Since I am the only 5/6 math teacher in my school it is going to be awesome collaborating with others who are teaching the same thing. We are pretty much using the same the curriculum!
