    Woo hoo! Yesterday was the first day and it went well. :love: I was exhausted by the end of the day, though.

    Did any other teachers make it through their first day recently, or is the first day coming up for you soon?

    No, summer is still winding down in NY.

    I'm glad it went well. Expect to be exhausted for the first 2 or 3 weeks; it gets a lot better after that.

    My first day was yesterday. It's my 4th year teaching, but my first at the high school level. By the end of the day, I had blisters on my heels and my voice was hoarse! That transition back to school never gets easier! And I was in bed by 9 last night. But the students seem ready to learn, which is all that really matters.

    Here goes day 2!

    Yesterday was my first day...year 20! I feel old. It was different. I can't complain, I only have 13 students. I am lucky.

    I made it through my first day... almost... as we had a strong earthquake near the end of the day. This might be a normal thing in some states but in Maryland we NEVER get earthquakes. It's the first one I've ever experienced, and the first for a lot of the teachers in my school. Through the confusion, and not really having a solid earthquake plan, the school did great in getting everyone outdoors after the shaking stopped, and nobody was hurt. Now I get to say that my first day teaching was really..... earth shattering :)
