School Year Success

Ladybug Teacher Files is having a School Year Success Linky Party and I thought I would join in.

I would consider our entire year as a success! (Can you do that?)
The year was filled with many academic and behavior challenges, added to this, it was the first year I have ever taught kindergarten. Although I have taught for eighteen years and have taught grades 1, 2, 3, and 4, kindergarten was a whole new ball game. I am thrilled that we all finished the year happy and knowing more than we did when the year started! Yes, this includes me too!

All students made improvements! WOW!!!!

Now that our year is coming to a close, I know that I will be a better teacher for having taught kindergarten for a year.

I am looking forward to next year and the surprises it will bring. The main question now---What grade will I teach?

Check out Ladybug's Teacher Files to read many success stories.


  1. Hey Mechele,
    Nice to meet you and thanks for linking up! How wonderful to have taught all those grades...I think it really does make a difference :)

  2. Wow! I can't imagine getting thrown into Kindergarten!! That must have been some really hard work!! I'm adding you to my K Sqworl so let me know what grade you become so I can put have you under the right grade level.

  3. Thank you both. I am a follower of both your blogs and I think they are wonderful! Your blogs along with others has inspired me to write this blog. Julie, this has been one of my hardest years. However, I just know I will be a better teacher. I am looking forward to next year and improving my blog as a go. Thanks again!
