Sunday night, 6:11 PM and I am just waiting for the chaos to ensue! I have a mixture of feelings on this eve of Spring term at school. I am excited to go back, excited to see the kids, excited to keep practicing with the girls. I am not so excited to deal with craziness, flu season, and lesson plans.
I have been making a unit plan the last few hours, finishing my TIA document (for the State), and trying to recenter my life around school! I never thought two weeks would feel like an eternity! I have these weird feelings that I am not going to even recognize some of my students! I know this is ludicrous, but for some reason that length of time, after seeing them pretty much 6 out of 7 days a week I have come to expect it. Well, after a two week break I didn't expect it anymore...but I better get ready because they are all going to show up tomorrow.
There are so many things left uncertain. We aren't able to get into the school today, as far as I know so my room is exactly how I left it (kind of cleaned up...kind of not). I need to go early and reorganize the classroom, prepare for the students, make lots of copies, and get ready for the storm that is 1st period.
I think maybe after a little bit of time with them tomorrow, even maybe just 15 minutes I'll get back into the swing of things. As of right now I feel like a train is coming right at me, and I am pretty sure it is going to go right through me.
Eeeeekkks, hopefully this goes well!
