I know I said I would be positive this post, but I haven’t felt very positive lately. My current school decided they didn’t want me back next year. I feel like I’ve learned a lot this year.
Since I was released, I have been contacted by a principal at another school. She seems pretty interested. I have also been reading up on classroom management strategies where I don’t have to yell ay my students. I’ve been reading Tools for Teaching by Fred Jones and a book series by Rick Morris. I’ve been trying it out on my current classes and things have improved.
I have also been coming home at a decent hour. My dog has been so excited. I have also found time to exercise some and I’m getting more sleep.
We have a new administrator (in-training) who has actually been helping the teachers out. Things have definitely gotten better; I just won’t be back.
I guess I can be positive after all.
