Special Announcement!

Attention all blog readers...from today forward this blog is going to be maintained by a 4th grade teacher...

That's right! I just accepted a position at my same school to be a 4th grade teacher!! For those of you who don't know, here's the story...

A few months ago the district ran out of subs, so for 2 days I taught 2nd grade & 4th grade. I had a BLAST! I had forgotten how much I enjoy the 'regular' classroom (I did a double major with my Master's degree & did classroom & music) & so I started thinking...Tim & I chatted when 2 classroom positions came open in my school, but decided I would not apply. Then, the day after the kids left for the summer, the teacher that had originally taken the 4th grade job backed out. So I started thinking again...talked with Tim & many others & decided I would go for it.

We found out that I had to apply & interview since I was under the district music coordinator, I couldn't just switch over. So I applied, interview by phone on Tuesday, & was offered the position (which I took) yesterday afternoon. I'm SO excited. I'm a little concerned to watch someone else do 'my' job in the music room, but I think I will be so busy learning my 'new' job that all will be just fine.

Watch out 4th grade...here I come!!

Oh my GOSH!!!! I am so excited! (although I am a bit sad that you won't be Kathryn's music teacher...) BUT...Hmmmmm, lets see.....Kathryn will be in 4th grade next year. Hmmmm......um....you know where I'm going with this, right? So, can we request you? Kathryn would have a heart attack if you were her teacher......(a good heart attack)....

It sounds like you're really excited! I bet it will be a fun change for you! An even bigger (and better?) change would be to move back here and be a 2nd grade teacher next year. :)
