back with a vengeance
so, it's been a long time. i think my last post was me saying that i wasn't going to be teaching next year. so much has changed.
i will be teaching next year. i realized that for many reasons it would not be wise for me to give up a stable position that sufficiently supports myself and my family and that i do actually care about. my new plan is to diversify.
in the coming year i'll be taking more certification tests. specifically for: ELA 4-8, ELA 8-12, Reading Specialist, and Librarian. this way, when my current job moves from a resource classroom to a co-teaching situation i'll be able to get a job in which i can maintain my own classroom or leave the classroom for a library. longterm i would like to pursue a Master's in Information Science and become a full-fledged librarian.
this is all subject to change, of course.
i do have some more shortterm issues that i'd like to throw out there for anyone still reading besides the spambots.
i have hopes to bring Mix It Up Day to my campus. ideally i would like to start and help facilitate some kind of diversity club. this would be a safe space for students to discuss issues of discrimination, bullying, and differences. but i have no clue where to start. has anyone done anything like this?
