Shortly before Christmas 2012, I found myself job searching. It seemed meant to be that although my mentor and teaching inspiration, Mr. Smith, had tragically and unexpectedly passed just a month prior, the district that he had been serving as Superintendent was hiring for the remainder of the year--JUST what I needed! It seemed his "leadership" had placed the open positions there just for me to pick up.
And so, I find myself in a 5th grade long term subbing position in a very challenging classroom. We have recently celebrated our "Hot" Test Scores with a "Hot Stuff Buffet" inspired by my friend, Erin, over on her blog Superheros and Sundresses.
|Students chose from many spicy snacks and were happy to spice up their day with the celebration!|
