I have seen on some other blogs educators creating themselves their own IEP's. What a Fantastic idea! I will be creating one of these also, but here are a few things that will be on it.
- Updating this blog- I have started so many blogs, but I am going to keep up with this one, I promise!
- Finishing my book- I am finally in the last stages of it (I think)
- Increasing technology in my classroom- I already have so many ideas on this! Be watching for more blogs over what I am going to do next.
- Be Patient and know that it is going to be a Fantastic year!- I am pretty patient as it is, but this next year is going to be a very different year. With education budget cuts this means an increase in classroom size. I am going to have to be Uber creative, patient, and ready to ask for help. I was able to listen to Dr. Eric Jensen today and he said something very important- when I feel stressed- take action over, write it down for later, or drop it. I have really worked on that this summer, and I will keep working on it this next year!
I know that I will have a few more IEP's, like some about increasing Autism Awareness, Destination ImagiNation, yearbook, The Breast Cancer 3 Day, and I am sure there are a few more.
Next blog will be about setting up my classroom. How do you set up your classroom? What can you not live without? What is the most important space in your classroom?
Here is a quick picture of my classroom for 2011. I I have changed some of my classroom around. I decided for my 10th year of teaching I wanted to be a little different. Next week I will have a new video that will take you on a tour of the classroom.
