The best part is....
I have a job!
I am still teaching 4th grade!
I am thrilled! As I toured my new building and started talking to my new teacher team and coworkers, I found out that I have a lot to learn. After spending about a week laying low, running in-town errands, and figuring out my way around (just a little...), I am just starting to actually think about school. And get a bit overwhelmed.
I broke out my brand new Erin Condren teacher planner and started writing out the school calendar and schedules. I still have about a week before I really need to buckle down and be at school consistently in order to be ready. Being new again is an odd feeling!
Our school uses the Leader in Me approach school wide, so I am starting with some reading. We've had a couple rainy days in July plus I don't know anyone here, so I've had plenty of time for studying.
Anyone have any tips or ideas for incorporating the Leader in Me in my daily instruction? I'd love to hear about your experiences.
