As I sit in my living room watching our amazing olympic athletes pursue their dreams, I am reminded how lucky I am to live out my dream every day! Change is almost always a good thing and I can’t wait to start on my new adventure teaching in grade 6. When I visited The Cottage (it sounds so much better than The Portable) back in June, I wasn’t expecting the bright, sunny classroom that was waiting for me. My first portable was just that: a portable. It was dark and gloomy and needed an awful lot of TLC to make it into something that felt homey for my grade 7s. We figured it out though and had a great year. My last portable I lovingly called The Villa because it was so spacious but then, it needed to be with 30 grade 8s! Maybe one day I’ll graduate to an actual classroom inside the school but until then, we’re going to have a great year in The Cottage.
Hope you enjoyed your summer!
