Today my brain is rambly-scrambly and tired. State testing, house woes (Et tu, water heater?), children running amuck... however!
Less than a week ago I found out I got the job I interviewed for -- Instructional Media Specialist! This means I'll split my time between managing two campus libraries and handling the technology needs in the computer lab, helping teachers integrate techie stuff into their classrooms, and even get to facilitate some professional development in the district! Woohoo! Very exciting news!
Of course, the flip side of this is saying goodbye to my classroom. This has made for some very weepy writing sessions with my young learners! I love the side by side time we share. This means I'm already thinking of ways to stay tuned in to the many students I'll be seeing next year at my two campuses. Peer-led writing center, anyone? School-wide NaNoWriMo club? Hmm... I know I'll find a way to keep writing with my new position. With any new adventure, it's as grand as I make it!
And I'm looking forward to a very grand adventure, my friends.
