Not a complaint about this year at all. It’s a lot and the shift from public ed to private has been steep, but it has really been a great year. I’m not trying out many new ideas, yet. Everything is so new that there’s no need to shock the system. We’re all pretty shocked … Continue reading Getting into a rhythm
I am enjoying this school year. This class is the best that I’ve ever had in my years of teaching. I’ve never had so many students in one class that want to learn. Even the few that are off task aren’t horribly off task. This has been a great school year. To say that I’m … Continue reading Why I lowered all my tables in my class

As with all … Continue reading A look back at 2015
This week was OUTSTANDING! I love this group of kids! I’m so very happy to have come aboard. Now let’s review this week in pics. The 5th grade team thought it would be nice to start everyone’s week with a special card. They were right. That was kinda cool. My neighbor who’s a 1st year … Continue reading First full week in review.
