I found out that due to my school growing a class and the school where I teach two overload classes, I get to stay at my school. Hooray!! Although I will say that the fifth grade I taught is getting a raw deal, they wanted the regular librarian and now they will have a second itinerant teacher. A class that depends on relationships.
This is the result of cleaning out my closet and drawers! So very much needed! And a test for my shoulder. I had to use a step stool to bring down the clothes and I was tired BUT shoulder did great!
I worked out in the yard and attacked invasive like Rose Briar invasive. Slow going, I can’t overdo the shoulder. But it was so fabulous to be outside!
Teaching about Banned Books Week. I love teaching this and tying it to the Bill of Rights. I am able to share with students my own experiences with parents challenging books. At the end, one student said “Thank you for defending Harry Potter.”
Coffee with a former student. She wants to write for children and is sharing what she’s done thus far. I love that she’s putting her work out there in the world. And I encouraged her to look into getting an MFA.
What are you celebrating?
