What’s Up this Wednesday in grade 2?!
Well, not a lot that is new. I haven’t been back to my classroom to check the floors and if I can get in my room yet or not. I suppose I should pop down at the school at least to try and grab the math curriculum to start looking over. I’ve read the Reading and writing curriculum overviews.
On a side note, it is so nice to be able to just drive 2 minutes down the hill to get to my classroom. Not that Asotin is very far but I do have to take a highway to get there and Webster is literally just down the hill from my house!
I got a few emails from the District Office. I have a benefits meeting on July 26th to get all of my paperwork completed for medical, dental, retirement, etc. Also on the 26th at 5:30pm at Brocks all Lewiston educators are invited for apps and drinks. I plan on attending this to start networking in my new school district.
I have my first training on August 6th. It’s an all day iPad training at the district office. Wow! Back to work already!
August 9th I have a new employee orientation at the district office. I haven’t received all the details for this yet, but again I’m a little excited for this and to be fully emerged in the Lewiston School District!
I also got signed up for our professional development days on August 15th and 16th. I mostly have to take all the curriculum sessions for new teachers but I did get to chose one session in the last part of the first day so I’m attending a workshop on observations and the NGSS with a K-3 focus.
So. Thinking about how much my August is already filling up and the fact that there is only 1 week left in July I am getting a little anxious about my classroom. I need to get a good start on setting it up to calm some of my anxiety. There is SO much on a teacher’s do-to list. It’s crazy the amount of little and big things we have to think about. If our salary was based on our job description we’d be making as more than doctors!!
Hopefully next week I will have some new pictures and an update of my classroom.
