New Year, New House and New School

I am finally back in my hometown of Ila, Ga (and my mom is so happy). After months of applying and many interviews, I have gotten a job teaching 8th grade science and 6th grade language arts. There are so many changes happening in my life right now. In the last month alone we have moved to Georgia from Mississippi, went on vacation, and remodeled our kitchen. It has been crazy.

I am excited about my new school. I will be teaching at Oglethorpe County Middle School. It is about 30 minutes from my house. I am nervous because we teach on block schedule. I am used to 60 minute class periods and I don’t know how I am going to fill so much time! I am working on new things to use with my students and I have been doing some reading to refine my skills in cooperative learning and interactive notebooks. So be on the lookout for new products!! 🙂

Here is a picture of my fish that I caught while on vacation (pardon the lake hair):

I know this post was really scatter-brained, but I feel like that is how my summer is right now. Hopefully the next one will be more put together. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!! 🙂

  1. Congrats on the new job! I have a friend who teaches at Oglethorpe Middle School. Her name is Janet High, and she is super sweet! Please make sure you tell her hello for me. We taught together our first two years of teaching, and then she left me in South Georgia and headed for Athens. Good luck with the move, the house, and the job!
