My Big News

I'm moving schools and grades.

I couldn't be happier! Don't get me wrong...I love my old school. I grew up there. I had my undergrad teacher training there (I was there for 5 years). That school, the families, the teachers and staff, the community will always be my home.

Change is good. It challenges me. Change allows me to grow in ways that I didn't see coming. I'm looking forward to this change. 

Change is also scary. A new building, new families, new teachers and staff. Lots of new to learn.

Yesterday I visited my new room. A KINDERGARTEN classroom, in a school that is closer to my home. It is lovely! And HUGE. And the teacher is retiring, so she is basically leaving me everything. Including the mandated rocking chair. She is so sweet.

Today I finished packing my old room and moved most of it home or to my new room.

Then I went back to my old school. Looked through my closet one more time, grabbed my fish and plants, turned off the lights, locked the door, and left. 

Tomorrow I will turn in my key.

It will be a couple of months until I can get into my new space, so in the meantime, I have gathered some books and I'm ready to make some Kindergarten plans.

Pin It!


  1. Congratulations! Yes, change totally makes us grow, but that's not to say it isn't hard! So happy for you, friend! :-)

  2. That's very exciting, Alyce. Congratulations! I moved to a new school three years ago and found the change rejuvenating :)

  3. I was a little sad to hear that Emma's favorite kindergarten teacher was retiring, but with you taking her place that just seems...right! Congrats! Payne & I will stop by and say "hi" on our way to his class this fall.


  4. All the things you've said about change are true -- glad you are taking the leap!

  5. SO exciting, Alyce! Congrats on the move and good luck! Can't wait to hear all about your journey via your blog! :)
