I have completely neglected this board over the last year, but I plan to make an effort to start coming back more often! Those of you who know me know that I was one of the people seriously addicted to AtoZ for a really long time! I finished up my first year teaching 5th grade Readers' and Writers' workshop on June 20th. I'm happy to say my contract was renewed and for the first summer since 2004, I'm not job searching! Then, on June 27th, I got married! After 6 years of dating, and 2 years of being engaged, we're finally married and I couldn't be happier. Now, I'm sitting home, and have my first summer off since I was 15. I started my graduate program, and will be doing some curriculum writing over the next few weeks, but I still have a lot more time on my hands than I've had in a while so I plan to be back on here more.
