Fall Round-Up & Some Thoughts4 Comments

I am going to go out on a limb here and be honest. Work is kicking my butt, in a good way!  I feel like I haven’t had as much time as I would like to be blogging. My nights are now getting excited over the teaching blog updates that I read rather than the updates on my favorite food blogs. I am absolutely loving second grade, but it is a whole new curriculum to learn and a challenge to find new ways to get concepts across to a younger group of kids. I honestly think that I have found my niche in teaching. I am so glad that I made that tough decision to switch back in the Spring. I am not sure if I was burnt out on 4th grade or what, but please pray for me that I get to stay for awhile in this new grade level. I am excited to go to work again and I just love the enthusiasm that these kids have for learning. It is so refreshing to see.

So please bear with me as I get my bearings in this new grade and slowly get back into the swing of things with blogging. I will be unveiling a new website design soon, so make sure you keep your eyes out for that in the next few weeks! I also plan to do some more DIY posts since I am working on some projects for the house. For now, I am going to leave you with my favorite Fall recipes.

    Oh man, do I know exactly what you mean! My blogging has slowed to almost a halt as well due to my teaching job. Long work days!

    Best of luck in the new grade level. Switching to a younger grade can be both challenging and reinvigorating since the little ones are so sweet.

    I am a 2nd grade teacher too, and I love this age. It’s such a great balance of loving learning, yearning for some independence, and accepting guidance. Good luck with your first year with a new curriculum. I think I always have the least amount of posts in September!

    Yay for you! Changing grade levels is always tough, but second grade is the best!
