I am starting to get a handle on my new job. So far, I've been in the wrong classrooms 5 different times (I REALLY need to carry a schedule with me) and totally forgot to go to one on Friday. Moving around is very different. However, once I get where I am supposed to be and have a chance to start working with the kids, I am loving it! It is very rewarding for me to be able to devote my attention on just a couple of students who need extra help in a small group or one to one. I love the fact that I do not have all of the housekeeping duties of a regular classroom teacher. Instead, I am focusing my planning times on searching for different or more effective ways to help my ESE students understand a concept or be successful in the gen. ed classroom. It has been hard to find the time to blog, but I'm sure everyone understands how crazy the start of a new year can be.
I hope those of you who are still on vacation enjoy the last few days...and that everyone has a wonderful year.
