Welcome back to my blog, and Happy New Year!
I’ve been absent for a long time, and there’s really no excuse, but I’m being kind to myself and I’m not going to make any. Life simply gets busy and things have to take priority, however, I’m happy to say that I have plans in place for 2017!
Firstly, you may have noticed that Miss Galvin Learns is getting a bit of a make-over. For a while, I’ve been meaning to change my blog name and align it a bit more with my other creative pursuits, so Miss Galvin Learns has become A Novel Classroom. I’m really pleased with the change and while it’s not complete, it’s on track. (I just couldn’t wait to share it with you!)
Thus, one of my goals for 2017 is to complete the change over, update my blog layout (and maybe tackle the change on my TPT store).
Next, this year holds significant changes for me, teaching wise. For the first time, I will not have a classroom of my own. Next year, I have taken on the role of Early Years Support which will see me working in the Foundation-Grade 2 classrooms in my school, working in support and coaching across multiple curriculum areas and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m also continuing my role as Foundation Team Leader, so I will continue to work closely with my beloved Foundation students and teachers. Some of my future posts will be around my 2017 role, so if there’s anything you’re interested in reading about, let me know in the comments!
Finally, I will be moving to my new apartment in early 2017, which will cut down on my commute time. I’ll be working on organising my time so that I can better bring you content here on the newly revamped A Novel Classroom. Ideas for posts include organisation tips, coaching tips, art projects and more. I want to bring YOU tips and tricks that you can take, modify and use in your classroom, which means I need YOUR input. Let me know in the comments what areas of teaching you would like me to cover in 2017.
I hope that everyone has had a safe and happy start to 2017. May it bring new adventures, experiences and opportunities for you and your loved ones.
