That moment…

…when you realize next year is going to beso. much. easier.

Having autonomy in my classroom is awesome (I know what books I have to teach, but can choose how I teach them/how much time I spend on them), but it is also exhausting—we’re talking two to three hours prep every night, and I am basically just one day ahead of the kids. Goal for this weekend: plan so I am at least a week ahead of the game.

I am tired of creating reading quizzes and rubrics and scaffold worksheets…and excited because I know next year, I’ll just be able to pull from those things and tweak them as needed. It’s gonna be awesome.
