First Week of School

It’s been over a week since my last post, and I was doing so well. Okay, so I’ve only had my blog for three weeks, but for two of those weeks I posted¬†semi-regularly. ūüėÄ

What kept me so busy this week that I couldn’t manage to write a blog post? The first week of the 2015-2016 school year of course. Teacher workdays. Preparing my classroom. Writing lesson plans. Orientation. The first days of school. Learning routines and schedules.

However, even with the exhaustion that comes from being back at¬†work and standing on concrete floors all day long, it’s been a wonderful week. Meeting new students who are eager to learn. Setting goals and expectations. Placing the bar high enough students¬†have to stretch, but low enough they¬†know reaching them¬†is possible.

And best of all, my students’ smiling faces far¬†outweigh my¬†fatigue.
