I recently made the announcement that my family and I will be moving from California to Tennessee in a few weeks. We have a house and I have a job, back in the classroom, waiting for me out there. This will be a HUGE move for my family, as both my husband and I have only ever lived in California. We are excited, but definitely a nervous excitement.
Being out of the classroom for the past four years has given me so many great tools to add to my "teacher toolbelt." Now that I will be back in the classroom (3rd grade), I'm excited to have the opportunity to implement the tools that I've gathered as a TOSA with my own classroom of students.
While I'm super excited to head back in to the classroom, I'm also a little bit anxious. Not so much for the kids - I've taught third grade before for 5 years - but for the TN standards and way of doing things. I feel a bit like a first year teacher again, trying to imagine my classroom and the way that I will do things in that classroom.
I would love to connect with some other elementary teachers from Tennessee, or maybe even some that have relocated from California to Tennessee. If that's you, leave a comment below, or let's connect through social media!
