Last Of The Daily Posts...For Now

Here it is 11:20 Sunday night. Tomorrow morning begins my 8th year teaching. I'm as ready as I can be and I'm kind of excited. My homeroom has 13 boys and 4 girls. It'll be good to get back into the routine, just not the sleeping routine.

With the start of school, this means I'll not be posting every single day. I've got a big mouth though, so I'll still have plenty to say so don't disappear on me!

Danger's still coming along, but I've started to realize that my time with this couple is almost over. I don't want it to be over, but yet I do want to finish and send this baby on her way to contests/agents/editors.

And now with school starting again, I want to get right into my "routine", which includes gym visits, LOTS of writing time and reading every night.

Wish me luck for tomorrow and I'll pop in tomorrow night to let you know how it went!

MONDAY NIGHT: Um, how many days until Thanksgiving break?

Good luck!! :?) Of course, I'm looking forward to the start of school for the *opposite* reasons you might be -- and dreading Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring breaks. Okay, not dreading. But I am SO ready to NOT have my kids home all day, every day!!! Aaaahhhh!!! ;?)

I know, I've had PLENTY of parents saying the same things, Kerry! We're supposed to have a total of 17 kids max in each room. Well, today they decided to throw 3 more kids at me (without all the supplies) AND I've got 15 boys now and 5 girls!

Routines are good. Fall will bring new routines for me as well.

Hard to believe school is starting again already. Where did summer go???

Cripes, that's a small class! What grade do you teach? The classes where I live can get up to 32 or 34 students (granted, that's high school - I don't remember elementary school anymore)

Cindy, this is my homeroom which is 6th grade. I'm in a charter school and we're supposed to have small classes. In most public schools here they also get upwards of 30 kids.

Oh, good. Both that you're in a charter school and that most American classrooms have 30+ students. I was beginning to think you had it better than us. Can't have that!!
