My life keeps changing all the time. I was informed that I would not be teaching Kinders this coming school year as I was asked to pilot a new program platform for our Pre-K special education kiddos. I am very thrilled and excited about this as my background/credential is in Early Childhood Special Education. I will be providing these little ones with early intervention and will most likely have most of them for 2 years. I will be doing a transitional PreK which means I will have these little munchkins for over 4 hours a day. Kind of a long day for 3-5 year olds but I on the other hand feel blessed that I will be able to teach them and mold their minds. I have some very incredible kiddos this year, and can't wait to start my new adventure. (Okay, I would be lying if I didn't say I am loving my time off, as I had a VERY rough year with a particular parent) but up to the challenge of finding new Blogs (PreK) and writing my own curriculum. Oh yes, you read that right! We do not have a PreK Special Ed Curraiculum so I will be piloting that too! I am trying to find a good solid base curriculum and possible funding for a pilot program. I would LOVE any advice from all my fellow bloggers!
On top of that, I have been cleaning out my classroom, rearranging my classroom so
It will be more conducive for my new students and making it "pretty" for me since I will be spending a LOT of hours in there this year.
I have been sanding, painting and refurbishing old furniture for the classroom as well. I have a LONG way to go still but it is on its way. Here is a sneak peek at a few things I have done already.
