Back to school, Back to school: An Update from Your Favorite 7th grade Teacher

Today was the first day of school in our ever-growing district, and I couldn’t be happier with my new set of kiddos. I’m so excited to be back to school. It is going to be a year of learning for all parties involved. Wait, did I just say I was learning too? YES! Absolutely! Things are changing in my little world, and I’m along for the ride in a great school year.
The first big announcement that I’d like to make is that I’ve been blessed with the task of teaching inclusion this year. Yes, this is absolutely a blessing. I feel like God has called me to work with all 80 children I have this year, and I can’t be more excited than I currently am to tackle this classroom with them. I am nervous, though, about reaching each and every one of them to the best of my ability. Please pray for guidance and insight into this and share your best differentiating/inclusion practices with me! It takes a village!
Secondly, I’m co-sponsering Drama Club this year! How much fun is this going to be? It is like an English teacher’s dream. I get to work with several of my sweet students from last year AND help create something beautiful out of the written word. Classic.

Lastly, I want to make sure all my readers (you are out there, right) know that I WILL be continuing the series‘ I started this summer. Unfortunately, the sun, sand, and professional development got the best of me. I have lots to share about what I learned, and you can be on the lookout for those continued series soon!
