Please excuse this brief Wednesday night post. I just got home after a 13 hour day. Early to school to prep, school day and open house- I’m pooped!
There has been a lot going on this week! And it’s only Wednesday!
I’ve been worried about open house. Not nervous to talk to parents, that really doesn’t bother me. But, nervous because it’s new. I wanted to over prepare because… well, that’s just how I am. I wanted everything perfect and I did not want to forget anything along the way.
The good news was I received my “teacher money” this week so I could buy some supplies and my Pets in the Classroom grant came through so ( after two days of set up ) we now have classroom fish 🙂
Fish names will come later…I’m thinking that they should have science names. The kids want them to have spongebob names. Maybe I’ll let each class name one. Who knows. I’ll keep you posted.
I have been going in early each day this week and staying late. My DVR is overflowing because I definitely haven’t had enough time for that. And that book I wanted to start? Haven’t cracked it yet.
Luckily, tomorrow I am chaperoning a field trip so that takes away any preparations tonight.
For now, I need a shower. And some TV. And some sleep. Ugh, the life of a teacher…
