    I have my room mostly set up. I've read my IEP's and got my information packets together and in the BEE books (which are also finally done). I've done my schedule and picked work tasks for independent learning time. The only thing I haven't done is figure out what the heck I'm going to do with the kids tomorrow. I mean, I have a general idea (thus the schedule) but the specifics? I dunno because I dunno the kiddos. It's almost ten and I should be asleep, but I can't (surprise---not).

    Break a leg-- You sound so prepared and you are ready! I know how hard it is to fall asleep the night before school. You'll do a great job!!!!!!

    I was just going to post a thread like this.

    I start work tomorrow too! I probably should eat dinner soon (it's almost 7), iron my clothes, pack my lunch, start winding down so I can hopefully sleep. I need to go over my lesson plans again. I'm going to talk it over with my mom - just talking it out helps me remember things I forgot or notice any glitches. I'm going to get there at like 7am tomorrow, to finish some last minute things and just to be completely ready before the kids come in. I should make a list so I don't forget tomorrow. I'm so nervous, but excited. I am really hoping for a great year. Good luck to you!

    I go back tomorrow, too. I think I've got everything ready. There's always something I forget. It's never anything major, but annoying anyway.

    I had my "the alarm didn't go off and I'm late" dream last night.

    My first full day is today... I have a ton of things to pick from to wear, and my lunch packed.

    Need to go in early to get some copies made, and to put up my vocabulary (knew I forgot to do something on Friday).

    Good luck everyone! I am so excited that people are starting back, but at the same time very nervous! I still know nothing about my job and I start back on Monday. No kids for me though, not until after labor day.

    Let us know how it goes!!

    Yeah! Great day!

    I survived! Actually, it was the best first day I've ever had I think. The one student with autism and severe behavior problems, well his mom called before the bus arrived to let me know that he had been at dad's that weekend (no schedule, no meds.) and had been up all night--no sleep. Considering that, he had two meltdowns and they were mostly because he was frustrated because of a transition or a change---like I had recess before lunch and he wanted it again after lunch. The other major one was when I had to put his fidgets away so we could go to art.....but I was so excited to see that he responded to me and let me do some sensory therapy on him, which relaxed him a great deal. Everyone was impressed that my class was so calm and the lack of noise. Yeah!!!! Kuddos from the admin and from the teacher who had the kids last year (and saw how I handled a meltdown). :up:

    I have to say that my kids did do everything I wanted them to. I have someone who has aspergers, and he had a hard time, esp towards the afternoon. Also got someone new who had bathroom issues (blech!).

    Bathroom issues are the worst- I can't even imagine them in 5th grade! I'm glad that the rest of the kids were good!
