All year we've anticipated the retirement of a veteran teacher in our department, and we figured out a re-shuffling proposal to the principal. The remedial reading and writing "ELA lab" teacher wanted to return to a "classroom" position, and I offered my interest in the remedial position. Our principal liked the proposal, and we just had to wait out the last few months before the "official" assignments. There were other considerations and shuffling within our department, but mostly I was on pins and needles waiting for this change for me.
I have lots to say about this new position, but I'll post and discuss more another time. I will share this: teaching remedial reading and writing was an intention of mine before I knew what to do about it. Note to self and my blog friends - set the intention!
