The journey of a first year Kindergarten teacher...

Friday, August 3, 2012


Hello Friday! So I finally figured out how to put text in PowerPoint..took me a while but I got it thanks to The Teacher's Cauldron! I decided to link up with Oh Boy 4th Grade to show some love on all things back to school :)

I also got a call today by my principal to come in on Monday to sign "THE" contract. I know there are many veteran teachers out there and I wanted to know if this day is solely just to sign the contract? What has been your experience? Comments always appreciated!

 Have a great weekend everyone..


  1. Congratulations! Kindergarten is super fun. Sorry I cannot help with the contract question. Your newest follower from Back in Fourth.

  2. I'm your newest follower, I found you at Farley's Party! I would love for you to follow me too!
    Don't worry, the call sounds like it really is just for you to stop by and sign it because principal's have deadlines too! But if you have her for a second, there is nothing wrong with asking "Is this all you needed me for?" That will allow you to go home with no worries! Never be scared, they are people too! Good luck!
