Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for new opportunities.  The new school year is about two weeks away and I am looking forward to being the new Reading Interventionist for my school.  What does this mean?  I won't be teaching in a regular classroom, but will be seeing students with reading issues, working with them, and tracking their progress.  I am excited about the change and ready to make a difference in new ways.  

What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Let me know, big or small, it doesn't matter.  Link up and share with everyone!  


It's a Small Town Life
