Five for Friday


Sunday, I was offered a position in a new district. I've spent the last week frantically setting up the classroom, learning new systems, and preparing lesson plans. I am excited and exhausted at the same time. But isn't that always the case at the beginning of the school year? 

My son will be at a different school than me this year. This will the first time NONE of my kids have been on my campus. It's a little sad, but I know his new school will be perfect for him. He's in great hands!

So my new school is over 60 years old. It definitely has some quirks. My classroom is in the "new" wing. Here's the "before" picture."

I'll post more pictures tomorrow of the classroom reveal, but here's a little sneak peak:

And the biggest news of all:

Lots of big changes this year! What about you? What changes are you making this year?
