I'm kinda over this whole thing.
Day 26 — Your week, in great detail
Day 27 — This month, in great detail
I am not going to do that. Do you really care? No, you don't. Okay, sorry, if you do give me a call or shoot me an email and I'll draft it (in great detail of course).
In other news - Week 1 DONE. BOOOMMMM. Teacher retirement = 176 school days away.
Kids are good, school is good. I am so much more confident this year it is insane. You have natural allies in teachers but also in students. My absolute FAVORITE part of the first day back was seeing my old students as now seniors. I just love being with them and asking them about their lives (and secretly, because now I can be their friend, and not their teacher/enforcer :)) It's a lot easier to be relaxed and cool with them - because I don't have to teach them. I love my kiddies !!
ALSO, as a first week survival (and first pay day) surprise to myself - I bought myself my first major watch. It's pretty blingin. Pretty excited about it. I'll put up pictures soon!
