Three days in a row of practically passing out asleep for this “Welcome back to the school year” teacher. After being away from the grind for two and a half months, then thrown into a brand new school with 100+ student names and faces and learning abilities to memorize…I’m not ashamed to say that I’m crawling into bed at 8pm.
But it’s all for the greater good! I’m exhausted because good things are happening in my classroom; my voice isn’t gone because I’m hollering at students to get back in their seats, to stop talking while I’m talking, or to pay attention and stop catching up after a summer of being on vacation.
1. I’ve got A LOT of readers in my classes.
There is a heavy percentage of readers spread throughout all of my classes, and it simply makes me giddy!
2. My workouts have maintained their consistency despite my aforementioned appetite for extra sleepage.
Lots of this:
None of this:
3. The three most important doors in any teacher’s life are a mere 10-15 feet away from my classroom: the teacher’s bathroom, the teacher’s lounge, and the copy machine!!!!
