    Today was my first official day back. New teachers have been there since Monday (along with admin), today the grade-level leaders, tech & curriculum specialists returned, and Tuesday everyone else returns. My day was full of meetings the whole day! From 8:15-3:00 I was in meetings except for a 30-40 minute lunch. I am pooped! What about everyone else?

    Our first day is tomorrow. New teachers started Monday of this week. I don't like the first couple of weeks- I want them to fly by so I can get into my regular routine.

    I start the 25th and the kids start September 2nd. I'm not sure if I'm required to attend new teacher orientation, but I'd like to. I'd do that on the 18th.

    The students arrived last Friday, August 1st. Schools are closed tomorrow due to the weather--this first time I was not happy school would be out! We are not quite in to the groove.

    I´ve got my room set up as far as physical layout (desks, chairs, carpet, etc.). However, I am waiting until my TA returns on Tuesday to start getting BBs done and make it really look like a room.

    I started Monday for new teacher orientation (since it's a new district for me). Returning staff started on Thursday. We have open house on Monday and then students start on Wednesday.

    We started last Monday and had students Thursday and Friday. Funny how it seems like I have been back much longer than a week.

    We started Tuesday, kids came Thursday. Monday, I will be rocking & rolling. Have to get my lesson plans done, back to old routine. My daughter just ironed our clothes for the week. Friday we will be going on a weekend getaway to Galveston, Texas before my DD3 move-in day for Freshman at Loyola in New Orleans.

    At one of the largest districts in my area (I used to work there), they started back on Aug. 6th.

    All of LAUSD (Los Angeles USD) kids start back on Aug. 12th.

    We started on the 7th - students come back the 20th.

    The nice thing about starting back earlier than most area ISDs (I'm in a charter) is that we are always out the last Friday in May :)

    We start Monday (18th). Kids come the 20th. I'm ready mentally to be back. I'll go in 2 or 3 days this week to finish getting my room ready. One of our work days is just that-a work day. We're guaranteed seven hours. However, I like to relax a little and do work on my computer that day.
