New Beginnings

So I haven't posted in a ton of forever.

Since my last post in September of 2014, I have started a new job in education.

I am now an Academic Coordinator at the east campus of the school where I started teaching in fall 2013.

Essentially, I aid students and teachers with all things academic.

I prepare, plan for, and proctor testing.  Which in Ohio is a lot.

            A lot.

I try to keep up with the ever changing rules and laws that relate to teaching, students and testing.

I train teachers.

I attend meetings.

              A lot of meetings.

Teacher evaluation takes way more time than I ever realized.

Like teaching, there's always, always more to do...

It's a challenging, frustrating, amazing, difficult, fast-paced, sitting at a desk job.

Some days I hate it.

Most days I love it.

And I have given up my summers.

I'm not sure how I feel about that yet, but as the school year comes to a close, I like it less and less.

So, to keep up with my changing every day, this blog needs to change, too.

First a new design - stay tuned.

Then a new focus - perhaps professional development?
                             - perhaps more personal?
                             - perhaps something else entirely?

I miss writing.  So what began as a teacher's blog will become something new.

It's fitting that it's spring.  Easter time.  Time for growth.  Rebirth.

A new beginning...
