I Can’t Believe I’m Teaching Kindergarten!

Ahhh I can’t believe it! My first day of teaching Kindergarten is finally this Monday. In the past week, I observed the long-term substitute and the Kindergarten teacher next door, which helped to calm my nerves down about teaching Kindergarten. I prepared my classroom, which included moving around furniture, decorating the walls, and getting all my teaching materials ready for this whole week’s lesson plans. I feel as ready as I can be! Thanks to Serena for all her help in my classroom, one year after another! We get a workout through it every time. If I have to move schools or even switch out of Kindergarten next year, I’m going to have a new classroom again… I hope not, I’m getting tired of this.

Take a look at my new classroom :)
