I am happy to announce my most successful first day of school yet. I had the fewest recurrences of my first day of school nightmare (basically, that I show up for a work day that turns out to be the first day of school and I’m unprepared) during the last few weeks, and I felt the most prepared I’ve been going into today. My lessons went well, and I didn’t have to use many of my made- up- time- waster activities.
In other school news, I’m joining an experimental group of lunch buddies. The idea is that on Sunday, this group (there are currently three of us) will cook a yummy meal and package it up in portion-sized containers. We all bring our meal to school and trade around, and we all end up with three homemade lunches for the week. We’re hoping to expand our club to cover all five days. I’ll let you know how it goes, but I’m thrilled at the prospect of fewer peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Finally, I have finally joined the most high-tech of teachers, and I have a school sponsored class blog. It’s not nearly as interesting as my personal blog, of course, but if you are interested in the minutiae of my daily schedule, it’s a riveting read. You can find it easily through my school’s website. No stalking, though.
Okay folks, I’m off to soak my weary feet and rest up for Day 2.
