Yes, that's the title of the book that I'll be reading to my brand new students in first grade tomorrow, because I am their new FIRST GRADE TEACHER!
Yep, the rumors are true, I'm no longer teaching Kindergarten. :( I found out that I was moving to 1st grade about 2 weeks ago. I wish I could say it's been an easy process, but alas it hasn't been. It definitely wasn't expected, and it was definitely a surprise. I was really upset and mad at first, but I handled it, and was able to move on.
We moved everything out of my old room to my new room, and then it's been a week full of fun inservice all week (NOT)!! Ok, well I will admit that it WAS pretty amazing to have the Laura Bush as our Convocation speaker this past Monday. ;) Other than that, I really have had NO time to work in my room and get prepared. At the beginning of last week we had about 48 kids split between myself and another teacher, which was not a good thing. However, thank goodness that we ended up receiving another allocation so we were soooo happy! We ended up having me and 2 other new teachers get hired..so we're all pretty much newbies! We've spent almost all week getting ready in our rooms so we're exhausted. I'm just ready to get tomorrow over and done with!
I know that moving grades isn't what I would have chosen, but I know that God has put me in this place for a reason, whether I can understand it or not! :) I'm excited about having a brand new name and a brand new grade and a brand new year!
Here's to new beginnings!! :)
