I just love a great linky party. I must admit I don't find interest in all but I have found a few that I like. Today's Linky Party is hosted by Kim at Finding JOY in 6th Grade I must say bless all you middle school and high school teachers. Not sure if I could do what you do.
What Would You Do Differently, Next School Year.
So I'm the teacher who likes to get to school early and leave at 3:30. By the end of the day I'm pooped and I'm in no mood to stay for another hour or two after my kiddos have left. However, I find myself being the "bag lady" and taking paperwork home with me. Even though I gotta admit towards the end of the school year sometimes that bag gets in the car but never makes it in the house. (hehe)
My district adopted a Math program called Math Investigations a few years ago and I do like some of the components. I would just like to create a few more "center" type materials for my kiddos next year. I don't want just "busy" work. If I'm going to spend the time to prep these centers it better be worth it and meaningful for my kiddos.
I really need help with this. I'm very hard on myself and I don't know one teacher who isn't. I need to continue to remind myself that I'm doing my best and that's what counts. I definitely need to give myself more praise throughout the year and even during those most difficult times of the year.
So there you have it! Nothing like having a plan. I will definitely miss my Firsties, but I do look forward to a little TLC for myself. Have a fabulous week everyone. 8 more days for me. Yippee!!
