    Congrats! I would have done the screaming! But then again, my kids are older. I cried when I got my first job!

    I know it IS a long pre-plannning, isn't it? It is a brand spanking new school, so we all have to get trained on the curriculum we are going to use - along with the school inter-systems, etc.

    I am just so happy - I got to use my new Staples "Teacher" card and loaded up on the penny deals, getting ready to buy uniforms for my kiddos, etc. It'll be here before I know it!

    I started my career at a brand new school. It has it's own unique challenges, but it also allowed me to take critical leadership roles, which might not have been possible with an established staff. Given the choice again, I would love to open a new school as an administrator.

    The school I work in was brand new when I started there in 1987. It was an interesting first few years, but an experience I wouldn't trade for the world.

    I moved to my current school in its second year. There were many growing pains during the first year (3 major reorganizations due to increasing enrollment), and the stress of not having an established library or book room, but it has been exciting being a part of the growth.

    I am interested to see how everything will work out. This year the school goes up to 6th grade, and next year it opens up to 8th grade.

    The fact that the school is not established is a little scary - however the charter company is established and is very successful. The owners are very hands-on and involved, and I think this is what will make the difference between success and failure.

    This whole thing is just such a great opportunity, and I am glad (ecstatic) to be a part of it.
