In preparation for the upcoming school year I have been reading other teacher's blogs. It has motivated me to create my own space where I can share with other teachers what has worked for me, and struggles that I have faced. It will serve as a forum for me to refer back to when I wonder what I did the year before, in order to better reflect on my teaching practices. It will also serve as a space for my parents to be updated on what their children are doing in my classroom.
Thinking back on my first year of teaching - I am glad i is over! It was a tough year. I was told repeated by my mother, a veteran teacher, that the first year is just survival, and it only gets easier. Well, I hope she is right! I look forward to the challenges preparing for a new grade will present, and the successes I will have with a different age group.
