Tomorrow is the first day of school for BCMSG! The past month has been a whirlwind of professional development workshops, supply shopping, and just plain getting into the mindset of starting off my first year ever teaching at a brand new all-girls middle school. Teacher college programs and a whole lot of summer reading didn’t really quite prepare me for all of this… it’s a nerve-wracking, exciting, and delicious experience!
There are a lot of thoughts going on in my head: Did I prepare enough? Are there enough copies and supplies? How will I deal x,y,z? At this point, I just have to shake it all off and believe that I wouldn’t be in this position if the administration did not think I was capable. All I ask of myself is to do my best, and to speak and act in ways that reflect kindness, generosity, compassion, passion and love.
So, I’m sharing an Animoto video I made to welcome my students to science class and to the new school year. I wish all of you, teacher friends, a fantastic year!
