Yesterday I went to the school where my morning Family Literacy class is. Each August when I go to my classroom. I wonder how bad it will be. It was not too bad.
I got some of the room done and will finish it next week. School starts next Monday, but my Family Literacy Class starts September 7th. I have a few weeks to take care of many things such as finish lining up speakers for the fall for our Thursday Community Info time, meet with other teachers etc.
I got a new ID badge in June, but sent an email to the teachers I know well asking if I should have used this photo from a retirement party in May.
It may surprise you that it was a unanimous 100% yes from my colleagues. One even said it captures my personality. 🙂
When the moms come back to class, they will make the word wall, the class calendar for September, and decorate the room. I like to have them do it because it builds community among them and also gives them ownership of the classroom. One item that will be included is this poster.
I like the message. I want the moms to think of themselves as being empowered in my class.
It was wonderful to interact with my fellow teachers yesterday. We had Open House. even though my day was teach online 12-2, at the school 2:30-6, and teach online 6:30-9:30, I felt energized as the reality of a new school year dawned on me.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

I definitely agree with the teachers re the pic for the retirement party. It does capture your personality. lol. Have a blessed day.
Thanks 😂 lol
Blessings little sister.
Are you ready for the weekend?
What a long day! I start college on next Monday, at least that’s when I register and start going to classes on Tuesday. I have informed my professors that i will be registering for their classes, because GSU-62 students, with free tuition and fees, register only during late registration, so paying customers get first dibs. As a professor, I liked students reaching out to introduce themselves before class and discussing their goals in the class. So, I am so excited, for now, to return to the classroom as a graduate student, fully aware that after the first week, I may find myself asking, “What are you doing?!” But who can resit free college and the opportunity for maybe a third career, albeit a shorter one than the others.
I think it is great you will study for a third career
I’m glad that the school year is starting and things are exciting. I am quite sure that you’re a wonderful teacher because you have a caring heart – and it shows! And yes to the picture! 🙂
Thank you for your kind words. I will try to make an unofficial ID badge with the pic lol
Best wishes Matt as this school year gets underway. I can remember those times as well with preparing my classroom for the first day of school. I will add my “Yes” vote for the photo, too.
The start of a school year is an exciting time
Indeed! Blessings to you, your colleagues, and students. My two younger daughters in Montana are gearing up for another year of teaching as well.
I like your teaching style of making everyone feel invited and accepted.😇👣
Thank you 🙏

Great photos and good on you for thinking of the women to feel empower in your class. Good luck with the new year, pray you all feel empower and stress free. 🙂
Thank you for praying little sister. Would it fun if I visited London and we went to a restaurant with me looking like picture with the green hat? Lol
🙂 that will be fun lol
Might find myself a green headtie too 🙂
What an honor for those moms to be in your classroom!! I’m sure it’s a double blessing for them and you both!
I feel the honor is mine 🙂
Sounds like your preparations are coming along well! Praying it’s a successful school year.
Thank you for praying 🙏
