My classroom is in the front, top, left corner.
Today was my first day back to work. It started with a meeting at the High School with the whole district's teachers. We had a pep talk and a summary of how last year's test scores went. We did well as a district. I am proud of us. Our building meet AYP, which means each student did better than the year before. That's what we want to hear! Our principal had an AYP congratulation party for us. That was a welcoming way to come back! It's nice to be appreciated.
Then we went back to our building and had another meeting. This is wear we got our chore lists, if you will. We got the list of all the behind the scene things teachers do. It's a pretty lofty list. But, just like everything it all gets done.
Then we got to finish getting our rooms together. We get our finalized class lists and get to put name tags out for the students; make last minute copies and lesson plan changes. Then we get to meet all the students and their parents at open house. I had 24/28 of my students show up. It was fun meeting them all. They are so little this year. Sometimes 6th graders are taller than me, not this year. I look forward to getting back on my schedule, even though it means sometimes running faster than I can. I'm really learning that when I leave my room not everything is finished and it will still be there tomorrow. :)
