What a year this has been! I'm not a first year teacher but this was my first year in a self-contained classroom (previously I was a resource room teacher) so I certainly felt like a first year teacher! This quote describes my year perfectly!
I have learned so much this year through trial and error. It has been a balancing act between not changing routines too often but still figuring out what systems work for me & the students (and the aides). I'll be sharing everything I learned this year (soon) so you can learn from my mistakes :)
