Hello, blog world! I figured that there's no better way to start this teaching blog adventure than to jump right in :) so, why not start my first EVER post with a Monday Made It?
I'm beginning my very first teaching job (feeling incredibly excited/overwhelmed) as a 7th Grade Language Arts teacher. That should be an adventure in itself because I am about the same height, if not less, than most middle schoolers. Wish me luck ;)
But really - I feel so fortunate to be able to teach what I LOVE. #ELAforthewin
I've been SO inspired by teaching blogs over the past few years, as well as TpT products. And by inspired, I also mean they have nearly saved my life a few times...
Last minute lesson plan ideas? Thank you, blog world.
Oh my goodness I have only been a long-term sub for two weeks and now I have to lead parent teacher conferences? That happened. Thank you, inspiration from teachers who know what they're doing.
In fact, I was inspired by a TpT product that I used in my interview example lesson - and I got the job!
So, it's about time I start interacting with (instead of stalker-following) and contributing back to the teaching community.
I made a sign for my 7th Grade classroom - made in PowerPoint and printed through Shutterfly (I took advantage of a free 8x10 print email offer!).
Yes, it was tempting to keep the picture as-is...
Once I received that lovely orange envelope full of hope and beauty, I put the print in a dollar store frame. Though the prints were free, shipping was about $3...plus $1 for the frame...$4 total is not too shabby!
I would LOVE to hear if you download it!
I linking up with Monday Made It! Woohooo!
