Summer Bucket List - ABC Style

Summer is so close, I can almost taste it! 

I've got big plans this summer! Plans that involve taking my two sweet kiddos to new and exciting places, plans to meet up with some of my very favorite teacher-bloggers in Vegas, and plans of staying up late and sleeping in as long as possible (with two little kids, the sleeping in thing doesn't mean much... haha!).

Did I {Natalie} ever mention that I'll be moving my classroom this summer and making a pretty BIG career change as well?! 

Even though my whole heart is in 5th grade, this coming year I'll be returning next year as the K-6 computer specialist for my school!! I definitely have mixed emotions about this change, but ultimately it will be better for my family. (Less grading, less planning, less stress!) It will be a fun new adventure and I'm mostly looking forward to the challenge that this new position will bring. Plus, I have big plans for my new classroom!

Having said that.. let me present to you my 'ABC's of Summer' bucket list!

YAY for summer!!

Contrats on your new position! I'm the K-5 computer specialist at my school in Las Vegas and I love it! My principal wants me to focus on integrating Common Core writing and technology and it's been a great experience!

I am currently a 2nd grade teacher and I will be making the same switch next year! (Our school is K-5, not K-6). I am so excited and I can't wait to see what kind of amazing ideas you come up with! :)

Teacher trip to St. George??? Core Academy? And, can I interest you guys in presenting at SUECON2013 (similar to UCET, but broader focus and in BEAUTIFUL October weather in St. George!). LOVED you UCET2013 presentation and would like to see it brought to us down south! The Call for Presenters is up at: http://www.suecon.org/

Happy summer!

Congrats Natalie! It's hard to work full time as a teacher when they kiddos are young. I job shared and came in 2x's a week when mine were little. Good for you , I think this will be a nice change for your family. Enjoy your extra time with them. <3

I totally want in on the St. George and Vegas teacher trips! I'm in AZ between St. George and Vegas. Very rarely do I get to meet up with teachers (especially from my own state) because we're so isolated. Yay for blogging!

This year was my first year as the instructional technology resource teacher for 1-8th grade after teaching first grade for 5 years and while there are many things I miss about my classroom it was one of the best decisions I've made :)! Looking forward to hearing ideas and how you handle your new role :)!
