What a year this has been. My first year in the Junior High has flown by. I have learned a lot of different things about 7th & 8th graders. The main one is they are having a tough time deciding if they are ready to become young adults or cling to still being a kid. I tried many new ideas this year with some failing and others hitting the mark. I t was a year of growing & testing but I have emerged with lots of teaching ideas from the experience. Twitter was a great addition to my Personal Learning, along with our Panthers Tech Bootcamp (which I passed) and my first experience with an Edcamp. I am grateful for all who have helped me through the school year to become a better teacher. I still have so much I want to learn & experience and I hope to take next year group of students on part of my journey. Here is too a relaxing (camping here I come), learning ( 2 summer classes) and bittersweet summer(my baby will be going to college in the fall)!
