There is a lot of restructuring happening at our school as we work to get back to a true middle school model. Part of these shifts include lots of people moving classrooms. I mistakenly thought I avoided being one of those people. . . . To be honest about the move, I’m sad. For the smaller reasons such as it’s already decorated, I just painted it, I’m used to the way it’s set up, and it has air conditioning (the one I’m moving to does not). The biggest reason I’m sad? My classroom is homey, it’s warm, it’s welcoming. It’s a place I like to be. I know I can recreate this feeling in my new room, but for today, I’m going to be sad, and that’s okay.
Storyline is an opportunity for Anastasis students and adults to celebrate, and reflect on, a year of learning as a community. During Storyline, each student creates a showcase of work from the school year. This gets shared with fellow students, parents, families, and teachers. The storyline helps our students to reflect on and summarize their learning journey, become more comfortable with public presentation, interact with their audience and receive feedback on their work. We love this day celebrating learning!

Day 20: I’ve always known I wanted to be a teacher. There was never really a doubt, but I did originally think I wanted elementary education. So happy I decided on middle school maths and science! Then I went back for my reading certificate and a masters in curriculum & instruction! I taught in Ohio for 5 years, then switched to Kentucky for the past 2 years! Day 21: I can’t teach without my doc camera! I know it sounds crazy, but I didn’t know how much I would use one until I had one available the last 2 years. It has made so many things a breeze, like annotating notes or showing student work samples! Love it! Day 22: Not exactly sure of next year’s plans, which is why my desk is cleared off (and dusty 🤷🏻♀️). I know I’ll be teaching science, but not sure of specifics just yet. Day 23: Honestly finishing things on my to do list helps me relax the most. When everything is checked off and accounted for it when I really unwind and can enjoy reading a book or taking some me time! #mayteacherphotochallenge
This is Patrick! He, too, wrote a piece for our school newspaper. He wrote to remind us that we can all do a better job of caring for our school campus and facilities by picking up after ourselves (and others when necessary). A good reminder, I think.
