Just when I was going to be diligent about posting regularly I hit a snap foo! Yes I said a snap foo! Not that it was anything bad, but it took me a little off guard. You see I got, in my eyes, this amazing job offer from out of the blue. I am a teacher by trade and I have longed to be a classroom teacher. These past seven years I have been a reading specialist, teaching reading mainly in the primary grades. I have so wanted to have a change and teach a regular classroom and I guess this was the year for that change.
Well after a few days of talking back and forth I finally accepted this new position of 1/2 time reading support and 1/2 time kindergarten. It was sad to say goodbye to all my friends at my previous school, but I just couldn't pass up this great opportunity.
I am now working 1.3 miles from my home in a district that I have wanted to work in for years. I had worked for this district as a para before I got my teaching license so I already knew a ton of teachers within the district. It was like going home.
Well since I am kind of new to this whole kindergarten classroom teacher thing I've been a little busy. Especially since I started there in the middle of the week for teacher 's professional development week. I just now feel like I'm catching up a little. I still have some work to do this weekend, but at least my lessons are written, it's just a matter of some fine details.
So this morning I actually had time to bake some muffins. I made some Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are so good. I hope you enjoy them.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 large egg
1/3 C softened butter
3/4 C sugar
3 bananas mashed
1 t vanilla
1 C flour
1/2 C wheat flour
1 t baking powder
1t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 C chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line with muffin papers a 12 cup muffin pan.
In a large bowl combine egg, butter, sugar, and bananas. Mix well. Add vanilla. Set aside.
In a separate bowl combine the flours, baking powder, soda, and salt. Mix well.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing well. Add the chocolate chips and mix well.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins. The ice cream scoop will help you to get the right amount of batter in each muffin tin.
Bake the muffins for 15-20 or until golden brown.
