Tomorrow is our first day of professional development. Our kids starts next Tuesday. I am excited to start the school year, I don't care what anyone says. I love summer but I love going back to school just as much. Being a teacher is like living in an area that has four seasons. Just when you start to get tired of one thing, the next thing begins. Here's to new beginnings!
'Twas the Night Before Professional Development
August 27, 2012
I know all my teacher friends out there get it when I say today was my LAST DAY OF SUMMER VACATION. It's so bittersweet. You probably think I spent it on the beach, or at an amusement park, or with my family and friends, or out to lunch, or something summer-ish and fun. False. I spent it in my new classroom. :-) But that was by choice. I couldn't stay away. I am the biggest procrastinating overachiever ever. Instead of just reading through my IEPs and moving on with my day, I decided to make this cute little cover sheet to put at the beginning of each of my student's IEPs and personal folders. I looked on TPT and didn't find a student information sheet that fit exactly what I needed, so I made my own. You can get the freebie here and maybe it's something another special education teacher would find useful! For me it serves as an IEP at-a-glance and a good resource for other teachers that may also be working with my kiddos.
