At least I hope I’m brave enough to face kids in a classroom. I’ve been through a bit of…stuff…since my last post. Quick re-cap: After a working at the local university for a short time, I was hired by The International School at Mesa Del Sol to teach 5th grade in December. This is an IB World School, so I’ll be integrating subjects within the context of a global perspective. Exciting stuff. Can’t wait to see what happens!
One thing I am committed to is learning through this blog. I plan to write a bit each day. It may end up being, “Oh my, what have I gotten myself into?” on occasion, but I hope it will become a place of discussion. I will share what I am learning, and hopefully you will share what you have learned during your IB journey.
Tomorrow is my first day in the classroom. I will get to know the kids a little, and we’ll start on a path towards the Exhibition. This community event at the end of the semester will share what the students have discovered about themselves and the world through the Primary Years Programme, and has prepared them to move into the Middle Years Programme.
Wish me luck!
