Breaking Radio Silence

So it's been about 10 months of radio silence on my end since my last post.  Yikes!  I kept wanting to update but just never made myself do it.  As you can see from my last posts, I began teaching 3rd grade science and social studies last year and started feeling really good about it.  About 6 weeks into the year, my principal asked me to switch to 3rd grade math because that teacher was going to need to be out for an undetermined amount of time.  It was a bittersweet change because I love teaching math but the circumstances for my friend weren't great.

So I jumped in and started teaching math the same weekend we got our first foster child.  I'm telling you, last year was TOUGH!  I struggled to organize everything without my usual summer-prep time and failed plenty of times before coming up with the system that ultimately worked for me.  I will start posting what some of those systems were soon because I think they were pretty good.

I look forward to this coming year when I will get to spend some time prepping instead of flying by the seat of my pants!  I anticipate keeping the good stuff from last year and bringing in some new as well.  I can't wait to share my progress!
