I feel like a fish out of water trying to keep up with the technology. I really want to have a wonderful blog like everyone else and do the cute and exciting things that I see. I am just not WORTHY! I made a blog button that turned out cute, but almost as big as my page! I am scared to try things like linking up to another blog. Who would want that WARSHIP size button on their blog anyway? We have just finished our midterm of the first quarter. It has been an exhausting one. We have a new principal, a new assistant principal that we all love but we have lost 2 teachers due to low enrollment. Our first week we started procedures and getting the new students adjusted to being 2nd graders. At the end of the day on Friday,actually about 4:00, we got 5 new students added to our classes because we had to lose a 2nd grade position. That meant we had to start all over with the newest new students and review procedures etc. I am ready to start teaching with gusto! I always have trouble the first 6 weeks getting things back into the grove because I forget they are not the mature 3rd graders that left my room at the end of the year. I have to adjust to the sweet 1st graders and turn them into 3rd grade wantabees.
