Onto the news...
Well, I'm leaving my school. Yep, not teaching, just my school. In fact I have already accepted a new position at a new school in a new district. It's even a 1st grade spot!! And to be honest I am SUPER excited. A little nervous (new demographic, WAY more parent involvement, etc...) but very excited.
I loved my school, but the district honestly drove me crazy. Do you all have the huge problem with teachers being kept as "temporary" for, what sees like FOREVER? I did. It was nuts! Every February I would begin my hunt for a new job and become continuously stressed, because the district was dragging their feet and wouldn't let temporary teachers know that they were being rehired until the last teacher work day (last year I had my whole room packed and back at my house... I mean EMPTY! When they let me know I could come back... arg!)
So I've had enough. I am a good teacher and I work my BUTT off for them. That should be recognized right? Not with more money or benefits, but just a little job security. So, I applied to a bunch a different districts and found one that was offering PROBATIONARY! Unheard of for them to just outright give it up!!! I got the interview and the job offer :)
So I'm movin' on... I know that doesn't mean I have it all, but at least I am a step closer to finding my spot :)
If you read through, thanks :) I needed to share!
Onto the questions...
Does anyone know where to find a tutorial for these giant tissue paper balls from School Girl Style?
I searched her site, but I just can't find it and I tried Martha's tutorial.... yikes!
Have any of you tried white board paint or magnetic paint from Home Depot? How magnetic is magnetic? Does that white board paint work or should I go for the shower board?
A new room to decorate... so excited!Tons of ideas rolling around :)
We only have 3 days left and now I'm packing like a mad women, so there hasn't been a ton to take pics of, but next week is all F.U.N. and I'll fill you in with them pics soon enough!
See you soon!
