So I'm looking forward to the start of the new school year to an absurd degree. Of course, that might change by the time our first student day (8/17) rolls around, since I have trainings, meetings, and professional development on the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th... and I think the 15th and 16th are classroom work days. Which means summer break is almost over. Wow, that went fast. (At least I get paid for 7 of the days above.)

Anyway, because of what my position entails, I probably won't have kids to teach for the first 3-4 weeks. I'll be testing kids to find out which of them needs extra help, especially in Language Arts (reading/writing), and possibly helping set up our new computer lab, and figuring out what the new intervention curriculum is going to look like. We'll have at least one and possibly more combo classes (more than one grade in the same classroom) based on our numbers, and four new teachers (I think). My other duties for the year will depend on if we fill a vacant admin position that's been vacant for the past two and a half years, but I imagine once things get going I'll end up teaching three different grades, possibly four once the kindergarten starts full-day after Thanksgiving break.

And I'm looking forward to that? What the heck is wrong with me?

...Oh yeah. Teacher :D
