Word Wednesday 

Today, I got to be a Special Education teacher for the fourth grade. This particular mix of students was great. They are such hard workers! We prepped for the math state test, practiced spelling words and using a protractor. I also got to have a bit of fun with them and ask about their favorite word they have learned this year for “Word Wednesday”. In case the photo is not legible, some of the answers they gave are:

  • Lunar
  • Overdrive
  • Overheat
  • Exclamatory
  • Magnificent
  • Multiply
  • Pink
  • No school ( 😝)

Monday Sorta Tuesday

So, today was the first day back after a “Spring Break” at the school I am substituting at in the Greater Pittsburgh area. Apparently it is not a thing to take a full week for Spring Break here in PA. I think that is so strange, but I will have to get used to it.

This whole not planning lessons, assessments, or making educational decisions thing is very difficult to get adjusted to. I really miss making instructional decisions that are best for ‘my kids’. I miss Hargrave, which is totally weird because I have literally never missed that institution since I left. Have missed some of the people like crazy, but not many of the decisions that were made… Also, it is weird that I haven’t had a group of ‘my kids’ since 2015. {I mean my own student learners in my class. I do not have children. Lawd help me.}

What happened to being a classroom teacher?! I so miss that.  Don’t quite remember why I gave that up in the first place when I started focusing on the adults instead of the students. I think that’s where I got lost.

Printing resumes and cover letters now. My resume is attached below in case you want to take a gander. I must say, I think they are pretty A-OK! 😍🥇
