Teacher Stuff

I just finished a huge 5th grade meeting with our principal initiated by the 5th grade team. We made a huge presentation to our principal concerning next year and departmentalization. With all the dumping of new standards, testing and whatnot, we asked if it wouldn't be possible for us to departmentalize - and lo and behold, she, after much give and take and discussion, said yes.


I am thrilled. I think this is an amazing thing.

Apparently, 5th grade is golden this year.

Woohoo! We're hoping to do a bit of departmentalization next year, and I'm already fantasizing about teaching 3 hours of math! I was going to ask what you would be teaching, then I saw your Label. More power to you, sister! I could teach writing all day, if I had to, but I have no idea how I would find time to grade all of that!
