... and a shocking twist....

Sorry forgive me.. I just spent the last hour watching some trashy reality TV. You know how they are- always the drama and the cliff hangers before commercial breaks. But I do have news ya'll!

  Starting a few months back my principal asked me to sit in on some meetings to help plan and design a renovation project for our library. The challenge - to update the space to be a 21st century media center! WOooooOOoo! If you know me then you know this task combined almost all things dear to me: designing, organizing, technology, and children! Throw in some family, a fiance, friends, and maybe a little Chipotle and I'd be in Heaven!

  Okay... I digress! From those meetings sprang an interview... then a second interview... oh did I mention our fantastic Media Specialist was retiring? Well starting in the fall I am now the official new Media Specialist for my elementary school :)

  Let's review my craziness...

 1) Getting married this summer
 2) Enrolling in grad school since I do not have an endorsement in library sciences
 3) Starting a new job in the fall
 4) Being involved in a large renovation job that leaves many timelines up in the air

    So in short... I'll be taking a break from blogging until I can figure out what I have to bring to the table.. or maybeeee more of like what I'll be begging ya'll for help with :) Obviously I'll be changing the blogspot title and address, but I promise to update you when I do. Thanks for all the kind words you have left, inspiring ideas, and the motivation to share what I have.


 Happy Summer Bloggy-blog-blog-blog friends!

I will miss your kindergarten blog as it is one of my favorites, but it sounds like you are going to love your new job!! Congrats! :) I kind of have a new job too for next year. I will still be teaching kindergarten, but I am moving from half day to all day. I am excited, but very nervous at the same time. I will be the only all day kindergarten teacher in my building and since the program is new to the district I am not sure what to expect. I'm sure we will both do well in our new positions and make everything fantastic for the children we work with. Good Luck!!

Kari! Congratulations! It speaks volumes about your teaching abilities to be charged with such a big step for your school. Personally I could not IMAGINE teaching 1/2 day Kindergarten... how do you fit it all in??? I bet you'll LOVE and be GREAT with all day. Let me know how it goes :)
