    We have to work one day, any day, in our classrooms the week of the 15th. Then there are 2 teacher days the next week, and kids the next week. They really like to drag it out.

    I'm just going to say it... I don't know. I know it is sometime in mid August, but I am not there yet. I will be in about two weeks. That is when the itch to teach hits me hard and I am ready to go back...:)

    Wow! I am surprised to see that so many schools start that early! To me, the beginning of August still feels like summer. Thankfully, the good thing about being a sub is a slightly longer summer. After all the kids are back in school, I still have a list of summer things that I would like to do and it will be more enjoyable without all the crowds. At the top of my list, is going to the Iowa State Fair! Most schools will have started back by the second week of it and hopefully that will mean it will be a little emptier during the day at least! I guess subbing does have some advantages!

    Here they say we're on a year-round schedule, but the only extra break is a week-long fall break. All of the other breaks are the same as everyone else gets on a traditional schedule. So I just think it's a longer school year here!
