So, I am getting close(r) to the end of my teaching career — I’m old enough to be looking wistfully as my colleagues begin to retire, but not ready to admit I should be quitting.

I was looking around at the disheveled mess in my room – especially the book libraries – and began thinking blogging might be a fun way to get me to once and for all organize the thousands of books in my classroom so that the kids can find them. What a concept!

So this blog is going to start out as documentation of my journey toward an organized classroom. Maybe I’ll get brave enough to even offer some advice or strategy. I don’t know…. some people seem to think I know what I’m doing. Not sure I’d always agree.

So, I’ll keep blogging as long as those piles of papers exist on my desk…. which should mean I’ll just keep blogging.

  1. Ahhh, what a joyful surprise, to see my friend Amy, blogging…..
    Stop talking about retirement, if I get another job with you and Paula, I better not be reading about myself on your blog!
    Love it!
    You are ( as I have always said, ) very inspiring…..
