It’s been way too long since I’ve last posted, but I’m going to blame it on being busy teaching and parenting. Between co-teaching third grade, coaching Jr. Lego League, being a team leader, a mom, a wife, and expecting- life has not been dull. To top it off, I have put in my graduate application into the University of Northern Iowa to get my masters in Literacy Education. If I get accepted, I will be starting that in the fall. Let the fun times begin!
I am in the middle of my third year as a third grade teacher with my standard license (finally) and I’m feeling more confident in my teaching, but I still have goals that I’ve set for myself. My focus right now is on improving my teaching in writing. I feel like writing is my weakest subject area and it’s even harder to teach. Thankfully, I’ve been using our Lucy Caulkins’ writing kits and researching online to help with this. 🙂
I will be posting some of the things that I’ve been doing this year soon, so keep an eye out!
