Two Months

Two months ago I "officially" became a first grade teacher.

I must say that I feel I'm growing into that role. I don't feel nervous or uneasy before school anymore (most days). I've learned a lot and continue to discover more things that I want to know.

I feel like some days we actually accomplish things.

I still have days that feel a little out of control, but those are fewer...or at least I tolerate them better.

I walked into my room the other day when we had a planning day. I looked around and thought, "I'm beginning to love this room." Oh, there are lots of things I want to do to make the environment better. There are many things I want to master...and help my kids master.

There are things that I know I need to improve. And (sometimes) I remember that there are things that I'm doing pretty well. (And, when I doubt it, the notes and hugs remind me.)

I love my new job.


  1. Aah, quiet powder. I need to get some of that for my house! :)

  2. It's been fun watching you navigate your way through your new role as 1st grade teacher. From where I stand, you're doing a great job!

    1. Thanks, Amie. I do enjoy it and want to get better at it.
