There is a time each year when the class just clicks and you know it. You have got this and the class is no longer a group of kids but a class, a single unit, united it seems not just in learning but in making the class a family of sorts. This happened early in the year for this class and we are so grateful for that. This group of kids has been a blast to work with. So it is with heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to them this week.
You see, we accepted a new position at another school in our district. We will still be teaching third grade and coaching, but our home site will be different. That means we have to say goodbye to this group of kids, to our team, and to our site to begin a new adventure with a new class, new team, and new site. We are excited about this new chapter in our lives. We are excited about the opportunity we have to make this change and for the class, we are about to start.
This is a week of mixed emotions as we end our time with one class and start a new year with a new group of kids who will now be "ours." It's very exciting, and a little scary, and even somewhat sad, but it is happening and we can't wait to see what the future holds!
We hope that you will join us on this new adventure as we make our way through third grade.
We will begin podcasting our adventures soon! Stay tuned!
