Musings on My Preparations for Teaching

I have to admit there have been some feelings overwhelmedness the past month. I have a lot of work to do. Any everyone says I have a lot of work to do. And everyone says I will have no life next year. I'm going to politely beg to differ. I will have a life, it's just that a lot of it will be dedicated to school. But I need to....make that, HAVE TO make time for my kids. I've got to stop doing the, "I don't have time," or "I'm too tired" thing. I've already done that too much.

I've been substitue teaching. It's been fun for the most part. It's given me an opportunity to work on my classroom management, connect with teachers and talk about how they teach certain things, be Griffin's teacher (awesome) and meet most of the students I will be teaching next year. (Very Cool) Oh, and did I mention, make a little money.YAY!! I have already appreciated all the help I have received. Especially from the teacher who is retiring and from the staff at Emerado or Border Valley. I know I already have a support group that is ready to help me out next year when I need it. That is encouraging and a relief. I wasn't made to operate on an island.

So, July and August are looking puhretty busy. In July I'm going to Pauingassi with a group from Church for a week, going to Manitoba Games in Swan River to watch Griffin, camping at Hecla and packing up for the move.

In August we're moving, unpacking, preparing for school and Adam and Rhea and the kids are coming out. AAAAAAAAAACKKKKKK!!!!!!!!
