And We're Back ...

I should be excited, right?

After a somewhat restful summer, it's back to steady pay again.

Is it just me or does it always seem that once you're back, it's like you were gone for a long weekend and nothing more. I suppose that's a good thing. I couldn't imagine still being on vacation mode while trying to convince the students that it's time to buck up and get back to work!

I've survived my first week teaching a new grade that I've never taught before. So far, I'm way too busy wrapping my mind around the curriculum and trying to jog my memory of it from back when I learned it to think about anything else.

I'll be diving into curriculum moreso next week. I think we're all in honeymoon mode, but before I know it, I'll need to write up report cards, and I'll need some proof of their grades. Like with assignments and stuff.

I'm glad to be back but it's strange knowing that I need to re-learn stuff. Now I understand why teachers never want to change grades. Nice and cushy to teach the same thing over and over again.
