Time moves fast.

I can tell how busy my life is by the amount of post that I do in that year, it has been nine months since my last post I can honestly say that I am very busy! 
The school year has gone by so fast and has been so busy I can't believe that this year is almost over. The year has been great but really hard with 32 students 2 of them having autism, I find myself working long hours and lots of meetings. The students have been fun to work with and I have learned so much. I am making a move to a new school next year and I am very nervous about this change but I know in the long run it will be a great move. 

I have been working hard on getting my Gifted endorsement with classes after work, I will now be able to teach a class of all gifted students. It has been a very long and hard process but I am very excited to be finishing it up next week. In my school district the students that test into the gifted program go to a gifted class once a week to focus on their talents and push them even further. I am hoping to one day be the teacher of this program and teach 3-6th graders. 

For spring break my AMAZING MOTHER took me to Washington D.C. for some much needed fun and sight seeing. We had such an amazing time there and had fantastic weather! Some of the highlights of the trip where; Smithsonian's American history, natural history, and flight. We went on a Capital tour and had the chance to see some great things that not everyone gets to see. The White house tour was really interesting my mom and I got to go through the kitchen and see more of the White house then most. We went on a night tour of all the monument, I was amazed by all I saw and learned. The man that drove the bus was very knowledgeable and took us to a few more stops then the normal tour. There was so much that we did in the few days we stayed, but this is just a little taste. 
This school year has been flying by and with the end looming over me I know there is still so much that needs to get done. 
Once again the Motto of the class is Finish Strong!
