Education is exactly that; an adventure. Nobody enters the field of education without that passion for adventure. I mean , lets face it.. How many times do your days go as planned? Our kids are always perfect little angels, right? We never have to answer the question "Is it lunchtime?" during a lesson. And kids never get those invisible cuts that need a band-aid just to make it feel better. Our lessons go exactly as planned, every single day. At least, that's what those who didn't get the calling think... Teacher's embark on a new adventure everyday; from the moment that alarm rings in the morning, until the time we close our eyes at night. We might have a plan, you know those lesson plans, the ones that you spent all weekend perfecting? Well, they look really great on that paper in your binder, but we all know it rarely ever works out like that. Did you even look at them this week? This is the joy and adventure in teaching.
With that said, I've decided to embark on a new adventure. I'm venturing into the world of blogging. I'm not sure where this adventure will take me, but that's the beauty of it. As a first year teacher, I think I probably have much more adventure than one person can take in a day, but as a teacher, I love adventure. After all, that's why we became teachers right? So I hope you'll become a follower and can share in my adventures, and myself in yours.
Until next time
Oh, and here's a link to my TPT store. It's just beginning to bloom so bare with me...
One last thing... If you are a intermediate teacher, you might like to follow my fiancee's blog.. (We share the same TPT store, but he has a blog of his own- and it's pretty awesome, so don't miss out on it! Really great ideas- linking with CCSS!!)
