New Job!

I am a little sad to report that I have taken a new job in my district for the upcoming school year. I am super excited about the job, but sad because I will no longer be a classroom teacher. While I will work with small groups of kids and model lessons for teachers,I will no longer have a class of my own students. I will continue to post ideas I do with small groups, in model lessons, and that I find from other teachers. If you are following this blog, make sure you are also following my Chalk Talk blog since most of my ideas will be posted there. I am also in the process of creating a web site. I will make a post as soon as it is up and running. Thanks! and I hope you all have a great start to the new school year!!

Chalk Talk

If you have just found my classroom blog, make sure you take a look at my teacher blog. I have not posted anything to this blog since school let out, but I have been posting teacher ideas all summer to my other blog - Chalk Talk.
