Well, tomorrow starts another school year for me. I’m really excited and nervous. Last week was filled with professional development and trying to unpack my things in the new library and get somewhat settled in. I still don’t feel like I have it all together. There are so many new procedures and things for me to learn and remember at my new school. I was in tears on Thursday and I think I walked around a little shell shocked on Friday, but a good night’s rest left me feeling better by Saturday. I know this feeling will pass once I get in my groove. However, my new co-workers have been super, super helpful and I just hope I can make them all proud to have me by the year’s end.
E.B. had a great first day in second grade last week. He was very nervous the night before, but he came home excited and I know he is enjoying being with his friends again. There’s lots of new things for me to keep up with for him this year, too. I know he is in great hands, though.
I’m looking forward to meeting my new students. I hope I can sleep tonight! I’m just as bad about being wired the night before school starts as I was when I was a kid.
