I have time and experience on my side as I think about the year to come.
My main objective will be to teach children well--to serve each child with care and attention and to meet the system and state standards as well as holistic standards for a high quality education.
During the summer months I'll shore up my strength with regard to time, energy, and preparation in order to meet the year's expectations.
In the meantime, I'll do my best to end this year with strength and care.
The children are happy. The year has been filled with wonderful events and terrific learning. I will miss these fifth graders--students I've taught for two years, so I want to make sure the final days are special and meaningful. Onward.
