The School Year So Far

Wow the first 10 weeks of the school year have absolutely flown by. I love what I am doing and now know that I made the right choice for me.  I only subbed full time for two weeks before I had an interview with a school that is a wonderful fit for me, I was surprised to even get the interview and beyond excited when I got my 50% position at the Langley Fine Arts School ( LFAS). LFAS is a great fit for me because of its culture of creativity and the push for creativity in the everyday classroom experience, I found a home where I can try what I had researched and learned about in my years at university at UBC and in the IDEA program at KPU.  After 2 weeks at LFAS and on my 24th birthday I had another interview at James Kennedy Elementary where I am working 30% of the time. It’s a busy schedule but it suits me , both schools I get to teach a  bunch of different ages and subjects and try a bunch of new things.

    What are the two positions focused on Amanda? I recall you were doing some Dance teaching – are the other positions non-enrolling? classroom based?

    Both positions are non-enrolling. At school 1 I do a lot of literacy support and am starting a lit circle with a stronger groups of readers as well as some arts when I can. At school 2 my load is fairly diverse I do health and career 6, French 5 and 6/7 as well as dance / drama and recorder. It is a busy schedule but I think I’m learning more than my students some days.
