Sitting here over summer break, I cannot help but think forward to the new school year coming up. I keep researching new ways to teach difficult concepts, especially in Math and the new NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). I love this part of my job; creating new lessons, activities, Power Points, etc. Mrs. Mitchell and I text each other daily, sharing incredible new lessons and articles about education. I am enjoying relaxing, going for morning runs, and being in the sun, but throughout each day I continue to think about school! I have a good feeling about the 2017-18 school year.
