Roll With the Changes

The big topic on everyone's mind right now: What will schools do in the fall? I have an answer to your question! We will do what we always do. But Mrs. Musgrave! You can't do what you always do!

Don't You Forget About Me

Deep down I knew it was coming. Somewhere in my mind, I knew that we weren't going back. But I've been living like I was going to see my students again. Last night when we got the official email, I let the emotions take over and realized that my face to face time with these kids is over. I am not taking it well.

Everything Is Cool When You're Part of a Team

I've been wanting to write something for the last week but I couldn't figure out where to start. I haven't really let myself feel the weight of the emotions yet. Even after being home for a day and having time to let it sink in, I still haven't totally accepted that I might not see my students again. As I type that I am crying because that's the first time I've really said it.

I'll Be There For You

As I mentioned in my last blog, I have a student teacher in my classroom this semester. I want to give Mrs. Lane a huge shoutout for her excellent work. I also want to take some time to write about some misconceptions about student teachers in the classroom.

A Change Will Do You Good

A picture was posted of me with my first class on the historical society's Facebook page yesterday. After I let it sink in that I'm on the historical society page and it was from 25 years ago, I couldn't help but think of how much I've changed since that picture had been taken. I am a totally different teacher than I was then. Teachers always say how kids are so different these days but hopefully, so are we.
