Miss Nelson...what a striking resemblance to me! Blonde hair, flushed cheeks...yep, that's me!
Miss Viola Swamp, the evil substitute teacher (who is actually Miss Nelson dressed up)
Wouldn't that be a fun little joke to do with my students?
So here is a little update on my life: The last time I blogged I was hoping and praying that I'd get a teaching position at my hometown district....that did not happen. I would love to blame the district and say that they didn't know what they were doing when they didn't choose me, but honestly I was not as prepared as I thought I was. I hadn't interviewed for a position in three years and I had been out of teaching for a year.....so I was definitely rusty on some of my terminology. To add to it I was NERVOUS. I put so much pressure on myself that I was sweating, shaking, and light headed at that interview. There was no way that I answered the questions accurately, and mostly, I know that I didn't let my personality shine through. So I know why they didn't offer me a position ::wah wah wah:: It's okay because I continued interviewing at many different districts in the last four months and I was offered a few different positions, but it was my most recent interview that I was offered my dream job! A contract second grade position. Second grade is my expertise and it is where my <3 HEART is. So now I am back in the teaching world and back in the blogging world...oh and back in SECOND GRADE, YAYYYY!
Here are pictures of my new classroom, (HUGE SMILE), despite the fact that it is a mess right now with furniture scattered all over!
