Hi friends and family! I've had some big news that I've had to sit on for a while, but...I am making a job change. Yep, 2 weeks before workdays start and I'm going to change states (again!). I am going back to my Chesterfield County roots to teach in Pageland at both Petersburg Primary and Pageland Elementary!!! The building that now homes PES is the former location of Pageland Middle School, where I spent my first year teaching band! AND Petersburg is where I spent 5 years as the media specialist. I totally feel like I am going home! and it's a super wonderful feeling. BUT, am I stressed!?! YES!!!
I have 2 classrooms to set up, that haven't been cleaned, so I can't get in them. AND, I'm going to have to spend a least part of the workdays and some of the student days in Charlotte. WOWZER! 3 classrooms to set up and lesson plans to prepare for me to use and a sub to use maybe...who knows!!! However, the end result with my being back in Pageland is sooo worth it!! I will be spending the next few weeks squeezing the last moments of summer fun in with my babies and working on lots of projects!
Ahhh only 2 weeks!!!!!
This blog has been created so others can follow my adventures of returning to a music classroom! I spent my first year out of college as a Middle School Band Director, then as the Music Associate at my church for five years. During that time I decided to make a change and began pursuing my Master's in Library Science. I spent five years as the Media Specialist at a primary school and deeply desired to return to my true calling. I've been given that chance in two elementary schools and I am really excited!
