    I start school on Wednesday! They're still painting murals in our rooms so they may not be done but I hope they will have all of the paint cans, etc at least hidden until the evenings :)

    Good luck to everyone! :)

    The first day for my students is on Thursday. I have in-services starting on Tuesday.

    I feel like I have been working though because I was working on my class and going through a ton of boxes for all of last week. The week prior to that, I was going through 4 days of new teacher training.

    I start Tuesday with the general teacher orientation (new teacher orientation was 2 weeks ago). The students start Wednesday with a half-day.. of which I'll only have my AP class, and my Latin IIs - the other two periods we're having on Wednesday is my planning period and hall duty! I'm so excited, but I'm frustrated with my room. Apparently, no one really shows up in the school until Tuesday - so the teachers who were in there before (it was a shared room) - still have all their stuff in there. From what I understand, most of the teachers stay till 7 or 8 pm that day to get their classrooms ready - I was hoping not to do that, but now I'll have to stay at least an hour or 2!

    Forgot this: they still haven't gone through all the textbooks, so I don't even know which of my new textbooks are in yet!

    Wow- some of you start very late! I would have thought Tuesday would be the latest- but waiting until Wednesday or Thursday... Wow!

    Good luck to all!
