So You're Moving

If, like me, you have recently found out that you are moving classrooms or grade levels and you are "thrilled"...

Rest assured, you've come to the right place! I have moved more than my fair share (no, for real, I have moved nearly every single year since I started teaching). Come along with me as we take the next few weeks to figure out "the great migration" together.

Week 1:

Let's start with something simple.


That's right people! This is a BIG DEAL and you are allowed to wallow for a little while. 

It's not just about picking up a few teacher's manuals and throwing them in your watering-can-decorated tote... this is time-consuming, hair-pulling, summer-sucking work! 

So pout a little.

Cry if you need to.

Maybe even have some fermented red grape juice.

Fermented agave works, too.

Throw your self a pity party!

Do you have it out of your system? Good. Because next week we move on and there isn't room to pack your big, bad, attitude!

Okay, I'm sorry. That was a little drill sergeant-y of me. But seriously, packing will take twice as long and feel thrice as horrible if you don't let yourself grieve a little. 

Happy Pouting!
