Well as stated in my profile, my journey to teaching has been long, rough, frustrating and at some points, only hopelessness, but all of my hard work has continued to pay off and I'm more than excited and proud to say that I need one of these! (See below)
I'm officially a FIRST GRADE teacher, FULL TIME no sharing, not that sharing was bad ;)
I found out on Tuesday that my transfer went through and all my hard work has TRULY paid off! Today we had a staff meeting and it was announced to everyone that I would be moving to first grade and the whole staff clapped and cheered. Everyone congratulated me all day, such a great feeling!
This year has been my first year and I have been working part-time teaching third grade. I really loved third grade and who knows I could be back there someday. I'm kinda over the moon right now about the whole thing, it's crazy to know right where I'll be and that I don't have to worry about it at all. Now I'm just ready to get into my *new* classroom and start planning and of course decorating! But I'm seriously gonna buy that t-shirt.
I know that it will be a challenge with the little ones, not being as independent as I'm used to but I have a wonderful and supportive team that I get to be a part of. I only have 9 days left! WOOHOO!!!
Any advice, ideas or whatever would be greatly appreciated!
