The 2012-2014 school year is here! My professional days begin August 12, and students return on August 19. However, this is a year of change for me.
For the past 16 years, I have been a classroom teacher in a rural school in Northeast Alabama. This year, I have transferred to a much larger school within my district-new location, new commute, new people. Also, I will have a whole new position. I will be an instructional coach working with teachers instead of kids. The position also requires that I visit the middle school one day a week. Another huge change for me.
Although the year will be a year of many transitions, I am looking forward to many great experiences. Throughout the year, I will share my successes, my questions, my excitements, my goals.
What changes are you making professionally this year?
