I was totally planning on linking up with Hope last night but I was just too tired! So today I am linking up with Amanda at One Extra Degree! Today the topic is professional growth!! Oooo such a big topic!
First I want to start off with, I am a current graduate with my masters in Curriculum Leadership from:
I really enjoyed my last two classes because I was able to make and apply things I had been learning into my classroom! (Finished in December!)
I think my ultimate goal is to be an instructional coach or do something with curriculum development! I really enjoy creating curriculum and working with other teachers to do the same. This year I have completely create our reading curriculum from scratch...aligned with the common core! I put everything I use for the week, including common assessments in a binder so I have it all for next year ! (I will write a post about this later)
This is what it looks like for January! I know it is blurry...I couldn't figure out a good way to save as a picture!
I looove creating curriculum, but I don't think I am quite ready to leave the classroom and do it full time! I have only been teaching for 3 years and it has been amazing....with of course its ups and downs. I plan on continuing to learn and grow as a teacher and then one day take the next step into curriculum.
A topic in the classroom I plan on pursuing more is reading! I love reading and guided reading and everything about reading! This is something I plan on reading and experimenting with more in my classroom. This year I am currently using:
Fountas and Pinnell's intervention kit in my classroom! I am totally impressed with the program and what it has provided for my struggling readers!! I plan on continuing to learn more about guided reading and how I can improve my own instruction!
Lastly I also plan on.... drum roll please.....
seeing Rachelle in two weeks at a conference in Wichita ! I am totally excited to learn from her and see how I can implement her ideas into my classroom!

Have a super Saturday!
