Moving on.... and Looking Ahead to Next Year...

It has been a bittersweet last week of school for me. On the last day of school I found out very unexpectedly that my k-1 strategist position would not be funded again for next year. Then in the 24 hours that followed I was moved three different times. Needless to say with all of that change there has been a lot of crying in the last few days.

You all know that I LOVE teaching and I LOVE kindergarten so I am VERY EXCITED to say I will be going back into the classroom next year!! I am already thinking about the little ones who will be coming to me in August!! So.... onto next year!! Lindsey, Carina, and Nicole - I am looking forward to our year together. I know it is going to be great!

Kaydi,

I was sorry to hear it was you that was leaving. I did not even know who had resigned at first because everything happened so fast!! I wish you the best of luck with your kids next year. Keep selling on TPT because I love the things I have bought from you!

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I needed them this week!! and I can't wait to share what is going on in my classroom with all of you!!

I am so sorry that you had to go through so many transitions in the last couple of days, I know how that feels, and it is horrible! However, I am excited to see your posts next year in your Kinder class!!!! :)

April,
As an instructional coach myself, I think you have done a wonderful job keeping your blog readers abreast of all the wonderful teaching moments that you experience yourself or through the teachers you work with. Many times I found myself amazed that you could produce so many amazing posts day after day!

Congratulations! I LOVE being in the K classroom. This will be my 11th (did I really just say that outloud?) year and I can't imagine doing anything else! :)

April,
You could not have been a better support for all the teachers you worked with. I am so glad that you will continue to touch teachers through your blog. I know that when one door closes another opens, so I feel confident that you will ultimately be grateful for this change. Right now though, I am feeling selfish and I will miss running into you at the campuses we helped with. You are a rockstar....just remember that.
