New School Year, New Job, New Direction

Topaz Philly LOVE
It's official. I'm out of my classroom (2nd grade) and working at the district level (though still as a teacher) on overseeing K-12 online assessments, data analysis, professional development for teachers related to the data, and whatever else happens to fall my way (I'm hoping to get in a technology course or two for our students).

I'm nervous, excited, anxious, exhilarated, and raring to go all at the same time. I'm setting up my Google Calendar and thanks to a recent Tweet by @KTVee I'm making sure that I 'schedule' things like 'create a photograph of...' and 'walk down the hall, breathing deeply', etc. As much as I'm anxious to jump in with both feet, it's important to realize that I (and really all of us) need to realize that in order for us to be at our best, we need to carve out some down time as well. And if that means it's an entry in my Google Calendar then so be it.

Here's wishing all in my PLN a Fabulous and Fantastical school year, whether you've already started, or will be greeting your staff/teachers this coming week.

Sounds like a "Coaching" position. You'll be fantastic! Way to go Nancy. New job = new energy! I've had a similar position for several years and love it! Congrats!

Hi Gina,

Thanks! I'm really looking foward to the upcoming challenges. And it's a good thing that I enjoy analyzing data! I'm also hoping to be able to spend some more time in the blog world.
