I can’t believe I’m almost done with my first semester of grad school! I also can’t believe I’m about to go back to work. Monday I have a training. Thursday, I begin in-service. I am really excited to take what I’ve learned this semester and apply it in the classroom! I have so many ideas now I’m going to have trouble narrowing them down to a manageable list.
I feel more energized this year as the school year approaches. I believe that is due to what I’ve learned this semester, my classmates, and the very act of learning is energizing.
I have an extra strong desire to make my classroom feel homier this year. I bought two lamps, an extra bookcase, and made this painting for my classroom.
The book is one I’m giving away for my blogiversary. This marks one year of blogging on quillandbooks.com . I am super excited because I have over 100 blog followers as of this week! I’m nearing 1,000 followers on Twitter and almost to 500 followers on Instagram. I started the Kathryn.Fletchers.Quill facebook page this week. (Kathryn Fletcher is my pen name.) I am most excited about the blog though. So far it has been mostly book reviews. This year my goal is to start adding in some content about writing and a little bit about reading. I made a spreadsheet to plan my posts. I have enough ideas for posts to do one every week for the rest of the year. I don’t know when I’ll have time, but I’ll make the time somehow.
