No offense TFA, but tomorrow when I have to come back for our First 8 Weeks kick-off I would much rather be at puppy play day. You see, my puppy has just decided that she actually wants to play with other puppies (after kind-of watching for 3 weekly sessions). And I think she’s pretty darn adorable.
I already know what you’re going to say. I’ve heard it before… we’re going to talk about changing lives and the city of Detroit. And don’t worry, I believe I am making a difference in my classroom, but I would rather make that difference working on plans from my couch… after watching my puppy make friends.
I’m not trying to be negative… I really am at a better place than I was last year, but I could use a little more time with all the new surprises that have been sent my way this week. (Side note: I will be teaching 3 grades again this year.)
I am excited about tomorrow for a few reasons:
1. I get to meet the new teachers who I will be working with next year. (Yay for a 2nd science teacher! I know my identity isn’t really a secret here.)
2. I’ll get an idea of how many 2011 CMs are left. (But I won’t see several of my closest friends from last year… bummer.)
3. I get to wear semi-professional clothes again… after I un-bury them from the bottom of my closet.
Ok… so two reasons.
