As I sit here reflecting on this school year, it has not come without its share of challenges. This was my first year teaching 2nd grade in my teaching career. Changing grade levels this year also meant changing who I was working with and losing my wonderful TA who was like a mom to me at school. My class has been rather challenging as well. I have had a very active group with some challenging behavior issues. I loved them all very much, but I am very ready for a break this summer.
In my reflection to this school year, I have composed my #teacherstats and posted this to my Instagram account as well.
I have taught for 10 1/2 years. I graduated early from college in Dec. 2005 and managed to snag a teaching job at a district about an hour from home for the rest of the school year teaching a first grade class. Then I went back to the school/district where I student taught to teach kindergarten for 2 years. Finally, I came to my current school/district where I have been for 8 years. While I have been here, I have taught 1st grade for 3 years, kindergarten for 4 years, and am now in 2nd grade. It has been a whirlwind and definitely CRAZY at times, but I love teaching my little people!
I am heading off to see our high school graduation this afternoon. The valedictorian tonight was one of my kiddos that I babysat when I was in school and is super precious to me. I am so proud of her accomplishments and can't wait to see her receive her diploma. I would love to hear all about your #teacherstats as well!
