Adventures of a new, forty-something, first grade teacher.
I really like your site! I'm a new, older teacher too. Do you have directions on how you made your mini-offices?Thanks!
I am a retired teacher of 27 years experience. Twenty of those years were in first grade classrooms, the rest in special education. Let me tell you now, that you have some inspired ideas in this blog. I was forced to retire at 55 to move and help take care of elderly in-laws. I have regretted it ever since. I still try to teach at night in my dreams. I miss the children and the creativity involved in finding ways to help differently styled learners master knowledge. I wish I could have taught with you, because I can tell we would have traded ideas on a regular basis and been friends. You are doing a great job!
Hi! I teach in Prince George and I'm LOVING your art! It's an area I'm not inspired in, but yours look wonderful. ...I'm mooching! Do you have a soft-copy of these mini-office sound and number charts? I'm trying to de-clutter my walls and this seems like a great idea!
