New Beginnings...

“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, We will fall!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.” 

Guillaume Apollinaire

I am a creature of habit; I love routine and predictability. So when I was offered a chance to move to a school much closer to my home, during this past 'reorganization week', I hesitated to take the chance to move because I was fearful of change and the unknown.
However after being at my current school for many years and burdening my young children with early mornings, hours at latchkey and long commutes, I took a breath and accepted a kindergarten position at a school thirteen minutes from home.

On Friday, after saying goodbye to the families I have cherished working with for many years, I packed up my belongings (yes in a 27 foot UHaul!) and moved to my new classroom.

Being in a new space was interesting. I was nervous and excited at the same time. I'm sure that as I get to know my new children and surroundings we will work together to evolve our space. But for now I have the 'footprint' of the room established for our new start this week.  

Here's a sneak peek:

I look forward to seeing what new learning awaits me! Change is often the catalyst we need to expand our own thoughts and actions as we have the opportunity to collaborate with new people who have diverse interests, experiences and ideas. I am excited for the opportunity!


  1. I can't wait to hear about all the exciting news from this adventure! Your new families are so lucky to have you.

  2. My daughter will be a part of your new adventure so very excited for her first year of JK with what seems like such an enthusiastic and creative teacher!
