Notice anything new? There are two correct answers...but I won't make you guess.
The first change is another social media button. I'm joining the bandwagon and joining Facebook! I figure it will be away to share things I don't necessarily want to blog about, and family/friends who don't necessarily blog or want to follow that way. I'd love for you to follow me there as well. If you'd "like" to just click the button on the side!
The second change is that I now have 200 followers. What!? That is completely crazy!! I never dreamed I'd have 2 followers let alone 200! So I feel a little celebration is in order!
Many of you may know that I am switching from K-5 Special Education to 4th grade General Education next year. I'm pretty excited for the transition and all that it will hold. I'll be able to work with my mentor teacher from this past year, and co-teach with her. I'll be teaching ELA as my school is departmentalized. All sorts of newness all over again, and I can't wait!
But I have to.
There is still this school year. I love the kiddos I work with and the staff members as well (. There is still a lot to do to get ready and done for the last few weeks of school. I feel as though I have a foot in this school year and a foot in next year as well. I have things I both need and want to do to finish out this school year, but I can't help to think about next year as well.
That's why I've made this giveaway something that hopefully everyone can benefit from whether thinking of plans for those last few weeks of school...or onward to what the future holds.
If you can bear with me for just a little while longer (sorry for the novel of a post) just two more things that I want to say.
Please look and be sure that you are not a no-reply blogger! I've made so many great friendships over the past through months through commenting and then emailing to converse with other bloggers. If you are a no reply blogger, then you miss out on this, and besides, it's hard to remember to check all of the comments that you have left to see if any replies have been made. If you are unsure, please check out a great tutorial from Jivey here!
Also, in case you haven't heard... teachers are taking over Instagram! I love this app and although I have a personal account that I post "teachery" things to, I will be creating an account specifically for this little blog. I will let you know for sure come Tuesday what name it will be under (most likely this blog). If you would like to join in, but you aren't sure if pictures of your personal life need to be displayed too, check out this wonderful tutorial from What the Teacher Wants to separate the two!
There you have it... be sure to to try for any items that catch your eyes and join me with some other social media ventures :)
