Our flight for Brazil leaves Monday morning and I have been stretched between school, preparation for my family to make an international trip and preparing to start teaching on a new campus the day after I return! Because I didn’t officially accept this position at a new site until this summer, I have been packing and unpacking my classroom in the last couple weeks, knowing that the bulk of my work is ahead of me with a new caseload. This also interrupts my 20% project as I will need to navigate a new school culture and climate before making any presentations. This is unfortunate as my former site could use this and would have been ideal for my first action plan. However, by design this project would benefit every campus, but not knowing the campus creates a bit of a challenge as I embark.
