|My first class of 6th Graders at Central.|
The Pegasus was their Starship
Where did the summer go? I started my 37th year in education last Tuesday; 30 years at Central Elementary School and the Space Center and now starting my 7th year at Renaissance Academy.
I will have met my goal at the end of this school year. I taught 6th grade full time at Central from 1983-1990. I opened the Space Center in 1990 while I was teaching 6th. From 1990-2013 I administered the Space Center AND taught at least one period of math (before the field trips arrived). The first three years of the Space Center I taught that one period of math at the start of the day and a 6th grade history class at the end of the day. Talk about burning the candle from both ends!
I retired from the Alpine School District in 2013. One of my goals for retirement was to go back to full time teaching. I wanted to teach 6th grade for another 7 years at least so I'd have 7 at the start and 7 at the end. This will be the 7th. Check that off the bucket list. What happens next? Let me get that bucket list out. Hmmmmmm.
