I stalk the teaching blogs on a regular basis, so I finally decided to create my own! After about 20 different templates, I found one that is "ME". I'll be honest, I don't know much about HTML, so...I'm starting slow.
I'm in the midst of working on my classroom and the 1st 6-weeks worth of work. My district is now a STEM District and our focus is going to be technology geared this year. I'm also working as my Campus GT Lead Teacher. I'm nervous, but very excited to see this program flourish and get the attention it deserves.
I am a departmentalized Reading/SS Teacher. I see around 60 students per day. If you've never been departmentalized, it has major benefits and drawbacks. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE planning for one subject, having depth of knowledge in my subject area and working across grade levels to plan. One major drawback is not having a homeroom. Personally, I struggle with organization which leads to management issues with so many kids. I will say, I've gotten better about it with time.
I am looking forward to keeping up with all the amazing teacher blogs!!
