Currently November

**OOPS  somehow I inadvertently linked to my November currently instead of December.  Please click this link for December currently.

Hello to my faithful followers.  I must admit that this school year is off to an awesome start with great students, but I am stretched to the limit!  I honestly thought I had cut back on committee work this year (and I swear I have), but I am still on the Grading for Learning committee that meets once a month 3:30-6:30 (that is a LONG meeting!), and I am a lesson study facilitator so that involves some additional time out of school for training.  I am also mentoring a friend of mine who happens to be our new math interventionist.  She is part-time so we barely ever see each other at school because she is pretty much with students the entire time she's at school.  Fortunately we are both going to the same Halloween party Saturday so we can catch up.

Our Carnegie implementation is going really well.  There have been a few bumps in the road (as expected with a new curriculum), but I LOVE it!  I can see a huge difference between how the kids are learning this year vs. how they learned with our previous curriculum, Mathematics.  The best news is Carnegie is Common Core aligned so we are in a much better position than other districts that are filling the gaping holes created by CC.

So many new and exciting things are going on in my classroom this year, I am just having trouble finding the time and energy to blog about everything.  Hopefully things will settle down a bit for me now that football is dunzo!  Well they will settle down after next week when 1st quarter grades are done.  Hope you are all having a wonderful school year so far!

Please join the fun and link up with Farley.

  1. I don't know how I could function being up that late! I feel your pain about being stressed! I would be interested in hearing about your new math program.
    Happy Weekend!

  2. 3am and you're still awake! WoW you must be exhasuted or have a LOT to do! What is it that is making the workload this year more exhausting and tiring?

    It's always interesting that you're beginning your school year and in Australia we have 6 weeks left until the end of the school year! I always wonder if it effects students differently.

  4. I love the song Payphone!! I'm feeling the stress of not having enough time too!! Teaching is so much more than just planning lessons. Like you, I always find myself on a committee. I love learning new things and helping my district/school, but it's difficult to balance it all. Good luck this year!!! :)
