Moving to a new school was a MAJOR change for me. For the last 19 years, I taught in Catholic Schools. This year is my first year teaching in a public school. I went from teaching 23-28 students self-contained, regular ed to teaching two classes of 24 students, math & science only, inclusion. GUESS WHAT??? I absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt, LOVE, LOVE my new job!!! Don't get me wrong...I loved teaching in a Catholic school; However, being in my current teaching position has opened up my career to paths I thought I would never take. On a daily basis, I am reminded why I chose teaching 25 years ago! Yes, it is hard some days when the students are climbing the walls, but I wouldn't change my decision!
Changes are happening in my career too. I was chosen to be trained in leadership/administration by my principal. I may not see administration in my near future, but I can definitely see a leadership/mentor position.
Here are some pictures of my current classroom. Of coarse, Creative Teaching Press helped me decorate! Thank you!!

Gerald and I got married on December 6! Our wedding day was perfect. Everything went as planned and the weather was gorgeous! We had a small, intimate wedding with close family and friends.
Thank you for sticking through the entire post with me! I promise to blog often and offer more creative products! Here are some posters I made for my classroom. We use the CUBES Strategy for math. Enjoy!!
