A New Chapter
“One stage of your journey is over, another begins.”
- Gandalf, in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Who knew that a quote from one of my favorite movie trilogies would become applicable in my life? Well, it has, as next school year I will be leaving the classroom after 15 years of teaching to become an assistant principal at Shivela Middle School in my district. While I will greatly miss the staff, students, and parents of Tovashal, I'm absolutely ecstatic about the opportunity to support teachers as they support their students.
Some of you may be wondering what will happen to mrcoley.com, my classroom website. The resources on my site will remain online for teachers and students to access, but the site will no longer be updated as I shift my focus to my new position. I will continue to blog, however. :-)
This is not the end. I hope you’ll continue to follow me as my journey leads me to new and exciting places (like middle school).

I love your website (mrcoley.com) and am wondering how you created it. I would like to create a similar site for my 4th grade students.

A little off-topic but just wanted to say I liked the layout of the site

I happened to stumble across your class website. What Luck! I was immediately drawn in and viewed every page. Your philosophy on communication and helping students outside the classroom is my goal. I have such admiration for you. The icing on the cake was that you seek God in your life. Thank you for being an inspiration to fellow teachers and me.
Thanks so much for the kind words, Sandy! I'm thrilled to hear you found my site and that it's been a resource for you. God has been so good this past year as I've transitioned to administration, and I'm excited to continue to see the plans He has for me in this position. :-)
