    Or first few days? I started on 8/16 so today was just the 3rd day, but it seems that I have pretty nice classes so far. No looming confrontations, but then they're all rather "on best behavior" for the first few days!
    I'm also curious when you all start? It seems there's such variance in dates of starting... I thought the 16th was quite early, for I grew up going closer to Labor Day.

    We start on the 27th, so I'll let you know how it goes!

    In my experience, kids are on their best behavior during the first week or two of school. After that it's like they just can't hold it all in anymore and they sometimes practically burst with inappropriate behaviors!

    Is this your first year teaching?

    Today

    This was my first day back (with students) and all went well. We had an exciting day of reading the student handbook! You know that all my students went home and told their parents that they can not wait to come back tomorrow, ha! Anyhow, it's required and it's now a thing we've got behind us.

    Seems I have one that wants to be a talker, but overall things went very well!

    The teachers started Friday, but the kids won't start until August 27th. Yesterday we had new student orientation, and most of them seemed nice!

    We started on August 13th and this August had been the second hottest in the state of Indiana since 1936!! Anyway, I am happy with my classes and class sizes (largest is 28). But like everyone else has mentioned, after about the third week the bubble burst and teenager angst runneth over.
