Back and On Track

I'm back from my trip abroad and I'm SO happy to be home! Although I love traveling and I loved having the opportunity to travel to two of my favorite places - Greece and Italy - there really is no place like home. That…and the fact that the 100+ degree weather in Italy didn't entice me to stay any longer.

At the Colosseum in Rome
On top of the world - at the Acropolis in Athens
While we were on program, we were given some disappointing news - the program I was traveling with (and have been traveling with for the last three years) would be closing at the end of this travel season. I'm disappointed that I won't be able to travel with my students again next summer. I guess I will have to find another company to travel with.


But now that I'm back in California, it's time to get back to work. I signed all of my contractual paperwork for my new district and I begin teaching again at the end of August. I've been assigned a 1st-3rd grade special day class for this coming year. I'm nervous and excited about this new position…I just hope things work out for me this year.

I'm also back to working on TPT products - which I haven't done in a LONG while. I've had products that I created (and used) this past year but never got around to posting them on TPT. I hope - that in the next few weeks - I'm able to get them up and active.


On a more personal note, I'm also moving in with my boyfriend in a few weeks! Exciting times! We've decided to stay at the apartment complex I've been at for the last four years. There aren't any two-bedrooms currently available, so we have been wait listed. Until that time, though, we are moving into a SLIGHTLY bigger bungalow (still a 1-bedroom). All of my teaching materials - which have lived strewn across my current residence and taking up every inch of available bookshelf space - will be placed in storage.


New job. New home. I pray that everything works out well. Until next time!
