This past Monday after school I met with the two fourth grade teachers that I am replacing to plan my new schedule for this next semester. Time for combining their two student caseloads with mine. I’m keeping one of my original students, one fourth grader.
Ta da! Thanks to their expertise, we think we’ve got a working plan. One that includes everybody. On every level. On paper any way.
Everything always looks better on paper. But,”the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Schedules don’t always go as planned. Life has interruptions. But if we fail to plan, we better plan to fail. Teaching is all about planning. We not only need to prepare a plan, but we need to follow it, work it. Every day.
God has a plan for each of us. But it’s up to us to follow it. His word lays out his plan. From beginning to end. Genesis to Revelation. We just need to utilize the gifts he has given to each one of us to follow His plan.
Mine is evidently not taking the easy way out. But it’s okay. He’s growing me. It’s an ongoing process. For each of us.
Three more days of room 309, then it’s on to my new classroom. A new plan. Students coming in and out. For reading and math. All day long.
Here’s to my new future! I can’t wait to see how it unfolds!
“For I know the plans I have declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Love and laughter,
