I have been wanting to post, but for some reason, everything I think of is very depressing. I don't like having negative thoughts about teaching, but that's all I have been having. It's more just the frustration of having to completely change my schedule, away from what works to something new. I've been trying to find ideas for a new science unit we have to start teaching (matter...in first grade?!?!?!?) and I haven't had any luck. And the things I do like are too expensive for me right now. I've never, in my 12 years of teaching, had the trouble of not having the money to go out and buy what I want, but thanks to good 'ole California, I am in that boat right now. Payday is a few days away and boy am I ready! Or I should say, boy are the bills ready! So, I will close with the idea that my frustration will leave soon and then I can try to blog about happier things!
