Every year around this time, I find my shoulders tensing, and my patience waning. " Why?", you might ask. Well this time of year is insane for teachers in general, but especially for us Special Ed teachers. For some reason there are more IEP's and Re-evaluations due in December and April/May, than any other time of year. There is state mandated testing, bonus work to get the grades up, projects and such that take up TONS of time.
Next year- there will be no tensing, no multiple cups of coffee to get through the day. I pray it will be peaceful. I know there will be stressors, but I can also see how wonderful it will be.
Matt and I spent some time figuring out "rooms" this past weekend. Trying to figure out where to do our main schooling, and then areas for other times. Luckily it was fairly easy, but now I get to be creative getting storage int here!
Iwill be attending the Middle Tn Homeschool Education Associations conference next Friay, and I am SO excited. I will be able to get my hands on some of the curriculum that I have only been able to browse online, and will hopefully get to attend a few lectures. :)
There will be more updates soon. I have pictures to post of the kids, memories that I want to capture and things I want to say...but for now, they will have to wait!
