BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

5 days, oh man.

I'm still here. The summer has been crazy busy and I haven't given myself a lot of time to sit and write. Everything is good though- just preparing for my first year in my own classroom! Are any teachers following me? If so, let me know so that I can make sure to check your blog often as school gets close to starting up. I love reading teaching blogs, and belonging to message boards. (If you know of any really good ones, let me know!)

I'm moving to Houston in five days. Wowwww. It's unbelievable. Back in February/March when I first considered making this big move, I'm not sure how much I believed that I would actually get the job, let alone go through with it. But I did. And I am. And I'm teaching 7th grade science- exactly what I wanted! I went through a month or so this summer where I was really torn, questioning what the heck I had gotten myself into. Not the move so much as the teaching. How can I be responsible for my own classroom? Am I sure I'm cut out for this? And am I going to be any good? But then I got back into reading message boards and thinking up lessons and mentally preparing for the first days of school and buying supplies for my classroom... and now I am just so excited to get everything sorted and start teaching!

And while I'm really nervous to move 2000 miles away from home, it's going to be such an adventure. It's a big, brave world out there- time to start conquering it! :P

Good luck with your move. It is going to be a big change, but I am sure you will adjust quickly! :)
