Hello Blogging World!
I am here—and really scared to be entering this world! I have had my blog ready to go for almost a month (designed by Ruby Slippers Design—totally recommend her! I love the way she set everything up!) and have been struggling with what to write about first! So I am just going to keep it simple and give you some info on my classroom and what I want to accomplish with this new adventure!
I am about to begin my 5th year teaching in the Cleveland area. I am an Moderate to Intensive Needs teacher for grade 2-3. I LOVE my position and it is 100% my dream classroom. This year I will have 7 kids with varying disabilities who learn all of their core curriculum with me, but we go into the general education for lots of fun activities and academics when appropriate. This makes for a scheduling nightmare and I have become pretty good at managing two grades, two co-teaching schedules, and multiple therapy schedules! I will share some of my tips and tricks in the future so stay tuned 🙂
I am excited to being this blogging journey because often Moderate to Intensive needs teachers are few and far between so it can sometimes feel like you are on a island. Other blogs have really helped me brainstorm ideas and help with student behaviors–so I want to pay it forward! Also I am breaking out into the Teachers Pay Teachers world as well! I have a store with a few products (I am not too proud of—still working out some formatting kinks), but i have been getting better and I can’t wait to share some resources!
Thats all for now! Until next time!
