Wow, it's been forever since I blogged. I'm so embarrassed that I decided to just make a fresh start. New Blog, new teaching position and a new attitude. It's not that I didn't love my former position as a K-8 Reading Resource/ Technology Teacher with Library duties, but it was so random. Every day, I felt like I was running around in circles. I'm entering my third year of teaching, but this will be my first real classroom. I'm teaching a 3rd/4th combined classroom at a small Catholic school. I didn't change schools, which means I know all my kiddos. Honestly, the kids sold me on the position. I'm excited and maybe just a little nervous. My motto is " just smile and teach". I hope you'll join me on my new adventure at www.justsmileandteach.blogspot.com.
