All the teachers were back to work today! I never sleep soundly the night before we go back (b/c I'm scared of waking up late!) so I was at school at 6:00am! Lots of catching up! It was great to see everyone AND I feel like I accomplished a lot in my classroom, too. I'm not sure I'm ready for a new year, but I guess it's here!
I've tried to enter this year with a slightly different mindset on somethings. One being I'm not going to stay late all the time. There is always work to do and there will always be work to do. Staying late will not get it all done. So, I'm not going to do it anymore! I left at 3:15 today (right on time) and am pleased with the start of breaking the habit!
