I had really high hopes that I was going to get a lot accomplished this summer. Well, you know how that goes. I really do plan on getting caught up and posting some pictures of the things that have been going on this year. We have had so much happen. I got a new job. I found out mid June that I was going to be at a new school. I was SO excited. This is part of the reason my summer flew by so quickly.
I am going to tell you a little about my new job. The school is called eStem Public Charter Elementary School. Here's the website if you have any interest in checking it out... www.estemlr.net. It's name stands for it's focus... e(economics)S(science)t(technology)e(engineering)m(mathematics). It was voted the #1 elementary school in Little Rock last year. So, that's my school...
Here's my new position. I am a specialist this year instead of a classroom teacher. I teach HALT which stands for Higher Active Learning Time. I get to create my own lessons and teach what I choose. I do Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. Basically, my only restrictions are to teach higher level thinking, critical thinking, and creativity. I am loving it!
The other great news is that Brayden gets to go with me. He is in first grade and LOVES his teacher.
Here's the other thing that makes my school different than regular public schools. We are an extended year, extended day school. So, the kids started back to school on July 20, which means that I started back on July 13. That is the main reason I lost most of my summer. For me, though, it was absolutely worth it to be at this school. I love my new job and the school!
More to come soon...I promise! :-)
