Well kids, tomorrow is my first day on the job. (staff mtgs for 2 days, kids come on the 7th). I feel like I'm getting on board a train and ready to take a long, exciting journey. (sorry for the corniness). I feel kind of emotional today, too. It's like, after 5 yrs of subbing, I finally have my own classroom. I just want to thank all the great people on this site! I have learned so much from you all, and I know I will continue to do so. Now, to figure out what to wear tomorrow, lol. I own so many pairs of jeans, it's awful. My "professional" wardrobe is rather meek. We are taking staff photos tomorrow too. Well, those are nice things to worry about for a change, instead of, "How will I pay my October rent!!!???" I just felt like sharing, and wishing you all a Happy Labor Day, and a productive school year....wether that be as a teacher, a para, a tutor, an office worker, whatever! We all have one thing in common: We are teachers...classroom or not.
