Hi (again!)


This was a little project of mine during my second and third year of teaching. Somewhere along the way I fell off of the blogging wagon. But I have been craving a creative outlet and after creating a teaching instagram account in the Fall, I am feeling super energized and motivated by other teachers -- so I thought I'd try my hand at this blogging thing again.

My last post was January 1, 2014. So now, almost 4 years to the day...
Since Jan of 2014 a lot has changed!

-I got married (Sept. 2014)
-Switched school  the same month (And NO, I don't suggest changing jobs and simultaneously throwing a wedding!)
-I bought a house.
-Got a dog.
-Switched grade levels.
-Took on a bunch of additional responsibilities at my new school.

I'm sure my life has changed in a million other ways too...

It's been fun (and a little cringy) to look back at my 2012-2013 self. At that point I was at the start of my career and I was so passionate and creative, something I hope to tap back into in 2018. At the time, teaching was my life and I was happy to spend countless hours prepping and creating on nights and weekends. But with all of that passion and zest I was lacking confidence in my own teaching abilities. I knew that I was doing my absolute darnedest for my kids but I always had this nagging feeling that I didn't have any idea what I was doing!

Today I am more experienced and more confident in my teaching. I have been teaching for 7 years and  have gained so much content knowledge. I am more comfortable interacting with parents.I have a bag of teaching tricks and go-to activities. I can write a lesson plan in my sleep. But to be completely honest, I've also had an  ebb in my energy level, my passion, my constant motivation to keep coming up with new and exciting things to do everyday.

I think I have a lot to share and know that I have a TON to still learn!

 I hope that getting back to this blog, as well as continuing to follow other teachers on social media,  will help me to connect, to reflect on my practices, to hold myself accountable,  and, most of all, help me to continue to grow in my craft. 

So let's see what happens with this little blog.  Thanks for following along on this journey!
