I know I don't have a TON of teachers that read my blog, so you can just bare with me :) I love teacher blogs. Ok, that is an understatement, I live for teacher blogs. And Pinterest. And teacherspayteachers. Those three resources have saved me numerous times when it has come to planning, worksheets, freebies, management, seriously everything. I love the idea of teachers sharing their awesome ideas with others and sharing the knowledge they have learned over the years.
One thing about teacher blogs is...I get overwhelemed.
Sometimes All the time, I look at blogs like The Insipred Apple, Primary Graffiti, Erica Bohrer, Step Into Second Grade, The First Grade Parade, Mrs. Jump's Class, and Second Grade Shenanigans and I get SO overwhelmed by their experience and great ideas. I just want to have everything from each of their classes and copy every. little. thing.
Do I have any teachers out there who struggle to find their own way? If everyone else is doing it so well, why don't we just do the same!? UGH. I was so inspired by this post from The Insipired Apple, I just had to share. Check it out.
I will have my own one day.
As our hard drive gets larger with the freebies and downloads, I am growing more confident into the teacher I want to be. I am still waiting to be "unleased", but learning along the way. These two years of teaching have made me grow so much as a person and as a teacher. I am very thankful for the experience and opporunities I was given. On to bigger and better things, here we come!!
4 more teaching days and 9 days until we're home! I can smell the fresh air already.
