First Grade Last!

Yes, you read that correctly! I am officially a first grade teacher! I don't think it's officially set in yet. I'm teaching my favorite grade at an AMAZING school. Seriously, I'm so blessed. I'm trying not to go too crazy in buying things for my classroom until I actually see my classroom. The teacher I'm replacing is moving up to 5th grade so I imagine that she left some books behind that would be too "little" for her 5th graders. I am eagerly awaiting the TpT back to school sale...I've already put a million 1st grade related things in my cart! I'm going shopping this weekend to pick up a few things and I will post pictures after I do so! Thanks to everyone that nominated me for the Liebster Award! Is it too late to answer the questions and nominate people? I'm a terrible blogger...but I was too worried if I started blogging I'd spill the beans about my job before it was "official!" Thanks again for nominating me and HELLO! to all my new followers! More to come! :)

Hi all, just thought I would update you all. I have not found a teaching job yet. :( I am starting to get pretty discouraged that I won't find a job for this upcoming school year. The district that I want to work in hasn't even posted jobs yet! Many people have told me that they do not start posting jobs until end of July and beginning of August, so I guess there is still a chance of getting hired. I did email my resume to the principals of schools I substituted at the most. I have a feeling that if I do get hired it will be the week before school starts. That is such a scary thought! Of course, I'd be happy to have a job but that would leave very little time for me to prepare for my classroom. Since I'm a new teacher, I'm starting out with nothing so I'd love to have time to make and plan things for my classroom. I hope all of you are doing well! Hopefully my next post will be announcing my new teaching job! =D
