Preparations

I end every school year wondering if I’ll ever recover enough to be energized by the start of the next year.  I can say that I feel mentally ready.  With new regulations and tougher students I expect that this year will put me under faster than other years.  Thankfully, Science 8 has been expanded to four sections.  That means smaller class sizes and better seating arrangements ans lab groups.

I’ll be making up a to-do list soon to make sure I’m physically and pedagogically as well.  This year I will be focusing on my English language learners and developing interventions (RTI).  Tech will continue to be altered and further implemented.  I’d like to use Edmodo for student work more often.  Computer use may not be on a state assessment, but it is essential for college and career readiness.
