School's Out!

I can't believe that it is already the end of May. Yesterday was the last day of school. It seemed like this month just flew by. This was my fifth year teaching. Every year brings new challenges, personalities, and fun. I had up to 36 students at one point, but 34 in the end. They were such sweet kids that truly enjoyed being at school. Because of the large class size they were very noisey-to be expected; but also the most messy class I have ever had. My partner cleaned before she took them to lunch and we spent lots of time cleaning before the end of the bell. It amazed me how quickly they could turn the classroom inside out. They also were the most "huggy" class I have ever had. They loved to joke around and have a good time. I wish them all the best in Jr. High

My partner for this year was Katie Davis. She is one of the best teachers I have ever met. Her ideas and lessons were always well thought out and enjoyable for the students. She is able to stay home full time next year with her baby and I am excited for her but will really miss her as my second half. Next year I will be teaching math, science, and social studies in the morning. I really missed math this year! My new partner is Rachel Hansen, a new teacher, very sweet and very excited to teach. She will be a wonderful addition to the classroom. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to teach part time and spend the rest of the time at home with my super cute kid and handsome husband!
