I am joining the blog hop going on at Fierce in Fourth! Moving to a new grade level and a new school was apparently exactly what the doctor ordered because I have spent more time thinking and planning things for the school year this summer than ever before (with the exception of my very first year of teaching!) I am also more excited about teaching than I have been in a very long time which is saying a lot because I have always loved my job and will miss my firsties in a big way! So I have a lot to be jittery about but here are my top 3:
1. Whole Brain Teaching. I don't know any other teacher in my county who uses this (although I am sure there has to be at least one person). I am so nervous that everyone in my school will think I am a nut and that I will quickly earn the reputation for being the annoying and overly-excited new girl.
2. Who am I going to sit by at lunch on the first day of school? Yep, not much changes from the time you're a kiddo...what if the teacher table is full by the time I get there and I have to sit all by myself?
3. Crying kids and moms. I haven't had to deal with that in a long time. What am I going to do?
So many more but I'll stop here:) I am just so glad to have all you fellow bloggers for support, it's like the biggest and best collaborative team EVER!!! Click on the image above to join this blog hop!
I am also headed over to this awesome teaching blog:
$25 itunes giftcard giveaway. I would be so excited to win!
But wait...there's ANOTHER amazing giveaway at
I probably won't win either of these because I have the most horrible track record with raffle-related prizes but hey...it's worth a shot right??? Keeping my fingers crossed:)
