And so it begins
I started back at school this week. Monday was our first institute day and Thursday was our first day with students. I have been teaching now for 16 years and every year I am filled with anxiety as the new school year begins. Thursday was filled with those feelings as well as fear, excitement, and exhaustion. I am realizing, though, that this thing called a grace period does not exist anymore...at least at my school it doesn't. Kids are coming in a lot more comfortable and chatting with each earlier. Not cool. Anyway, I have been so busy with beginning of the year activities, meetings, copying, technology issues, etc that when I get home, I am just done. Where is the closest pillow? I hope to share more ideas with you next week as my body will hopefully get used to this schedule.
