Journey to Create a Classroom Library

Journey to Create a Classroom Library

I know I’ve posted a few updates on here about the fundraiser to purchase books for my classroom library, but if anyone is interested in following the more detailed updates, you can find them on my blog that is entirely devoted to that endeavor.

Once I get in the classroom to start setting up (August 12th) there will be more updates with pictures and progress as to how the library is coming along. 

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this short, yet incredible journey. It means so much to me, and to my future students (even if they don’t know it yet).

Jumping in Head First

I recently was offered a position to teach Middle School Language Arts and Debate. As a recent college graduate who is swimming in student loan debt and trying to finance her Masters degree, I gladly accepted.

A little background – I recently graduated with a B.A. in English and a minor in Education. Before graduation, I decided I would pursue a Masters degree in Education – a feat that I am currently conquering, slowly but surely. I have spent the last several years tutoring students and teaching after school classes, but I have yet to teach in a full-time instructional capacity. Needless to say, I’m excited, anxious, and terrified. I have never taught before, and the year ahead of me will be full of twists and turns, bumps and obstacles, and I plan to document it, if for nothing more than to attempt to keep my sanity.

I am scheduled to sign my paperwork this week, and then begin my new teacher orientation and training the last two weeks in July. Then, I have essentially a week to set up my classroom and begin planning before the school year begins. Talk about crazy! I am not even sure what to expect, but I plan on being as prepared as possible.

So, here’s to my embarkment into the world of education, and to the road ahead. Cheers!
