Nothing like starting off a blog with some great news. At the end of last year my principal told me that I would be teaching a 5th/6th split class. (I had also been asked to do this the previous year and 3 days before school started our school was lucky to get a new 5th grade teacher.) I had a better attitude than the previous year, but very overwhelmed! Once again we have been lucky enough to receive another teacher for 5th grade. Therefore I will only be teaching 6th grade- which I absolutely love!
