Today was my first official day back to work after the summer break.
As I mentioned previously, I'm in a new school this year but the same grade level. I am also in a regular classroom in the building now rather than a trailer. By some stroke of luck, I am by the teacher bathrooms, two sets of student bathrooms, the clinic, and the cafeteria.
Part of me feels like I have died and gone to teacher heaven.
My new grade level team is pretty awesome as well. I do miss my old teammates, but the new ones hold their own when it comes to being inclusive and communicating important information.
I won't even mention the ridiculous amount of resources (technology, manipulatives, books, etc.) at my disposal this year.
The kids will be attending school with me this year as well so they have stopped by a few times to help me set up my room and get a look at the teachers in their grades. Its so funny watching their faces get all shy when I introduce them to others in the building.
With last weekend full of back to school shopping during the tax free weekend, I think we are just about ready to get this year started!
To all my teacher friends, even those who will be starting closer to Labor Day, I wish you a fantastic school year!
