I am finally making the move from aide to teacher! I’ve been a classroom aide, long-term sub, and behavior support aide (if a student is having a behavior issue or needs a break, I take them until they are ready to return to class), and now, at last, I have a teaching job. I’ll be working with 15-17 year old students with quite a varied range of needs. This will mean lots of work going into differentiating, but I love creating and finding resources, and I’m so inspired again. When it comes to work, I’m a major perfectionist, and the thought of setting up a classroom, basically from scratch, is daunting. I have to remember that it will come together, but it might take some time, and I don’t have to have the whole year planned before school even starts!
I’ve added a few resources that I’m quite excited about, although it is all really time-consuming. Once again, I have to remind myself to take it slow. Not easy!
$2 on TPT. I added season cards to the preview, and I’m hoping to add a few more things to it when I have some time.
These are the papers I used and the color scheme for my classroom. I wanted to use my bright colors, but I thought that might be a bit overwhelming. So I chose these, which I think are really calming and beautiful!
