{Hello, Summer Break}

Well, here we are. May 29th--my first last student day. June 1st--my first final teacher day. A few months ago, I never thought I'd see this day. I was that "no tired like teacher tired" teacher. As a first-year teacher, I had never experienced the latter half of May. In college we were always done the first week of May and then said so long to our students. Well, there is not enough time are no words to describe May. I was so emotional thinking about all of the changes that lie ahead:

  • I was going to have to say goodbye to my first class of my own.
  • I was going to have to tell my class that they wouldn't be able to say hey to me in the hallway on their way to their sixth grade classes.  
  • I needed to pack up and move everything out of my classroom.
  • I had to say 'goodbye' to my 5th grade teammates who are some of my closest friends now. 
  • I have to assemble a new classroom.
  • I am moving from 5th grade to kindergarten! 
Yes...that's right...I said KINDERGARTEN!

I am so thrilled about moving to kindergarten. This has all happened so fast and I am so excited for this new journey. A few weeks ago I was beginning to plan next year in 5th grade. I was asked to interview in my home district where I went to school. (SO EXCITING) In literally a few short days, I had went from a 5th grade teacher to a kindergarten teacher. My heart is and always will be in the primary grades! My kindergarten position is literally and figuratively home. I have such a fabulous (for real--amazing!) team to work with in kindergarten and in the school!

Be on the lookout for some new classroom pics and a quick blog re-design!

Have a FABULOUS summer break!
