Mrs. Klein, First Grade Teacher!

What a fabulous birthday gift I received this year - a new job! I have been missing having a classroom ever since I walked around Target's Back-to-School section in August. Since then, every time I walk past things like pencils, or buckets, or watercolors, I think about buying class sets of all of those things (there's a reason why Max refers to my employment as a "hobby").

My new job is at a large school (825 students!) that has rave reviews and I'll be the newest 1st grade teacher! I student taught in 1st grade and after I was finished, I thought that it was the only grade I would ever want to teach - I loved it! Of course right after that I was offered a 4th grade teaching job which I loved as well, but 1st grade was my first love.

I'll be taking over for a woman who is leaving town for her husband's job (I can relate there) so it's a bit different from my position last year where I opened a new classroom by taking a few students from all the existing classes. My new classroom will already have teaching supplies and materials which is a great relief. The position, however, is another "Interim" position meaning that my contract ends in May. Again. Right now, though, May seems like a very long way away and I have a whole group of 1st graders to prepare for 2nd grade before then! : D

  1. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near
    future but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique. P.

    S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
