I made the move a few years ago from teaching 8 years in a low income school district to currently teaching in an affluent community with students that had parents that are deeply invested in their education and were more than happy to lend a hand. It's been an adjustment to understand the new set of expectations, increase my communication between home and school, and become better at asking for help (because hey, it's available here!). All these adjustments have been positive in every aspect but there has been a learning curve.
One of the new expectations in one of my schools is to be a large contributor to the bi-annual art and culture fundraiser. The expectation was that each class (16 in total) each created a group artwork to be auctioned off, each grade level K-5th completing different projects. Phew … thank goodness for pinterest. Ideas galore on pinterest.
Please Excuse the Mess
I'm slowly transferring blog posts from my previous website thebeeskneescousin.com It's taking a considerable amount of time to sort through things. Thanks for your patience.
