Hi! Who else out there will be a new teacher this year? I am going to be teaching 4th grade and am really excited! I am a newly licensed teacher, but have taught ESL abroad and preschool, as well as worked with several school programs. I am excited to meet my students and have been reading professional development books and collecting ideas on pinterest all summer! I am also moving cross states to take the job, which I hate (just the packing process I hate, I wil be happy to be there). If you're new, what have you been doing to get prepared? What are you looking forward to or anxious about?
