I'm Back and a BIG Thank You!

Hi everybody! Oh, how I've missed blogging! I am still such a newbie but was getting pretty used to it back in December. Let's just say, I thought that keeping up with blogging during student teaching would be possible, who was I kidding?! It is now April, and I've posted once! But, I'm happy to say I have two weeks left and am back to thinking straight and back to blogging! :)

I also have some fantastic news to share!.....

I got a job!!! 

I will be teaching first grade at the school where I did my student teaching! I'm so excited, terrified, and everything in between! 

So this is where my BIG THANK YOU comes in. THANK YOU to every teacher blogger out there! I truly had a successful student teaching experience and landed the job because of you all! I feel like my hours of blog stalking/pinterest exploring educated me more than any of the college classes I just finished. I have to say that I feel so incredibly blessed to have all you as resources at my fingertips! If you walked into my student teaching classroom you would recognize almost everything from blog world! I truly cannot thank you all enough. You are influencing teachers and effecting student's learning everywhere!

NOW! If you have some fantastic advice for me as first year 1st grade teacher, please, PLEASE share!! I cannot wait to begin this adventure with all of you!

WOW! A big congrats to you! That's so awesome you got a job at the school you did your student teaching. You can relax a little knowing that you already know the school! The best advice I would give to you is...not everything is going to be perfect and the word will still be there the next day don't spend too much time at work because it can just consume your life. I would also join scholastic book clubs right away so you can start your classroom library. I'm sure you'll do a great job! You're so lucky to have TPT and blogs to help you...I wish I had that my first year. So now just enjoy, plan some over the summer, and celebrate that you have a job!

Congratulations! The best advise is to remember "me" time. I used to go in every weekend and was sick almost all the time from the stress of it all. Take some time for yourself. Enjoy getting to plan during the summer, talk to your teammates and become familiar with your standards and school's scope and sequence for teaching.

CONGRATULATIONS! First grade is such an amazing year! You will do so great! I think the best advice I have for a first grade teacher is you can NEVER be too organized! But also even though you are excited to set up your classroom don't spend your whole summer in there. Take some time to relax before you start. (speaking from experience)
