So I guess I'm going to have to come the the realization that I'm a summer blogger. It seems like once school starts, my life spins out of control and blogging goes on the back burner. As is, I've been out of school for a month and I'm just now coming back. Not gonna lie, it was a rough year. I had great kids but they just didn't mesh so I was constantly on my toes and putting out fires. I love each and every one of them individually but as a group they were a hand full.
This past year also involved many changes. This was our first year with Common Core, the new observation process that the state of FL has mandated and new administration. Our new administration was definitely the biggest blessing. Our school finally became a positive place to be and work. Don't get me wrong, kids have always come first but for the first time in the 15 years that I've been there, the teachers and faculty were given value and a voice. We were appreciated for what we do and the results that we get.
So now that I'm back to blogging, I'm getting ready to take a vacation which is much needed. Hopefully, it will keep me motivated to keep blogging. It will definitely give me a chance to check out some new Target Dollar Spots. I haven't found much around here yet other than eraser dice which I thought would be great because they won't be as loud. lol Hopefully, the new stuff will be coming out soon.
