thank you so much for all the love and good ideas. i should probably update yall on the latest with my classes. the students that had already taken my class have now all placed in different classes, a few ended up with me as their on grade level teacher and a few went to the other 7th grade teacher. i have two small classes and one big class in my seventh hour. i am slowly working on getting everything planned that i want to accomplish this year. i have planned some awesome lessons and hopefully will be able to get my kids to where they need to be. thank you again for the support! it means quite a bit to me especially when i wasn't sure if i still had followers since my blogging is very sporadic.
