It’s been a long time since I last posted. This year is fairly crazy in terms of how many students I see and how many rooms I float into. It’s been burning out my ability to keep track of my days here.
I thought I wouldn’t like my schedule this year, but as is often the case, I dig being the underdog and attempting to elevate my station. The new teachers working with me are great, and I love seeing all the kids. I won’t lie, the work load can get intense with so many students. I see twice as many as I saw last year. But I’m having fun with my curriculum. With the classes this year it feels more like discrete problem solving with my students. Specifically what are you struggling with, and how can I focus on that issue? Don’t get me wrong, I like the global teaching of ELA that I’ve done in the past, but the more specific tactical help is an enjoyable change.
I can’t believe I’ll be through a third of the year on the 29th! It’s flying by, zoom!
