It's crazy how this summer has flown by! I think I've mentioned this before. I have 2 weeks before I report to duty as a teacher. I will be going into my 5th year of teaching. Every year, I tell many that it always feels like the first year. However, this year I feel quite different about it. I'm not freaking out about it or preparing months before like I used to. Ask those who have lived with me, hahaha.
I can say that I know what I am doing (whoa, I actually said that). Yes, I will take time to prepare and take care of all those responsibilties that are entrusted to me, but I am not going to stress over it.
Before this past school year was out, I learned that I was going to be teaching Spanish 2 only. I was actually pretty excited that I no longer was a Spanish 1 teacher!! Let me tell ya'll that if I was given Spanish 1 again, I was not going to be a happy camper. The thought of teaching the Spanish alphabet again made me queasy and aggravated. Really, it did. I knew then, it was time for a change! So, I requested a different prep. It was granted.... ladies and gents my dues are paid!!!
This year, I know God has the steering wheel and will call the shots in my classroom. It's all in His hands and that's why I feel no worries about it, no stress about it. Yes, it'll get crazy and really busy, but I like it that way. I 'm excited to meet my students and see the ones I've had before...hopefully they matured over the summer.One can only hope, right? LOL
