September is here…

and that means a new school year and for me, a new school and position!

Since I spent the last two years achieving my CAGS in Reading and my state certification as a reading specialist, I decided to take the leap this year and look for a reading specialist position.  And since I always wanted to work with older students, I applied for middle and high school positions.

So, I will be the reading specialist in a sleepy little suburban town about 15 minutes from my home.  Because the town is so small, the middle and high school are in the same building.  Therefore, I will wear many hats — in addition to being the reading resource teacher for grades 9-12, I will teach a 6th grade language based ELA block, and co-teach a 9th grade language based ELA block too!  Very exciting and very overwhelming but I am up for the challenge!

My hope with this blog is to bring the resources for reading and ELA I have success with these older students.  Here’s a few shots of my room:room2roomWho says you can’t decorate in high school?  😉
