I finally have a classroom!

I’m about to start my third year teaching and, as the title has doubtless told you, I finally have a classroom! My students are probably savoring their last days of summer, as I am, but I’m getting excited to go back school.

As promised, here’s the virtual tour. The quality isn’t the best because YouTube kept rejecting my file formats, but it’ll work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mqosOqcnsc&feature=youtu.be

Late August

This is the time of year when teachers begin to think about school. In my case, I’m thinking about how much I have to do before school starts and how I really don’t want to do it. As much as I love teaching, I’m still in summer mode. I’ve been working on the boat a lot this past week, and the signs of summer that we see every day are not helping me work on school.

However, I am looking forward to the start of the school year because I love school! I chose to be there! I can’t wait to meet my new students, new colleagues, try out new ideas, revise old ones, and be a better teacher than I was last year. I’m also taking Italian (just for fun) at our local community college. I don’t know how to not be a student.

Another goal for the school year is to revitalize this blog. I loved doing it and then I stopped, for reasons still unclear to me. I’m going to aim for a post once a week, probably Wednesday because that’s the middle of the work week and it’s all downhill from there. So keep following, please and thank you!

Enjoy the last bit of summer!
