This is it

This is the last weekend before I start back to work. The summer has flown by, but that happens as we get older. I remember the summers seeming to last forever when I was younger. Yes, we did have longer summers then, but they were longer by only a couple of weeks or so. I guess that does make a pretty big difference. Of course, I also remember using the "I'm bored. There is nothing to do" phrase at least a bajillion times over the summer. How did Mom put up with it? LOL As an adult, I really don't have time to BE bored, and I know that makes a huge difference.

Teachers in Alex City start back Tuesday. We have meetings all day Tuesday; Wednesday is "individual school planning" which means faculty meeting, department meetings, and then random meetings for various other groups; Thursday will be the day to work in our rooms. I had planned on driving to the lake myself and staying until Monday, but I've decided to come home Sunday so I can go to the school Monday to try to get copies and all that fun stuff taken care of. I went last week and got my room back in order after the summer cleaning, so that much has been taken care of. My plan is to leave from the school on Thursday though and spending the weekend at the lake before greeting all of the smiling faces of the students on Monday (the 10th.)

My schedule for this next year looks pretty good. First semester I have two English 12 classes and one English 11. The only thing I don't like about it is that the English 12 classes are 1st and 3rd blocks, and the English 11 class is 2nd block. There isn't much time for changing gears. We have our advisement (homeroom) period between 1st and 2nd blocks, and it is about 10 minutes, so I will have some time to put aside the English 12 and get the English 11 out, but I'll have about 5 minutes between 2nd and 3rd blocks. During those 5 minutes, we are supposed to stand at our doors to keep an eye on the happenings in the hallway. I'll do the best I can but I'll have to pull out the English 12 stuff. Second semester will be better because my two English 12 classes are in the morning, and my planning is between them and my English 11 class.

I've got a few things I need to get done this morning, so I'll wrap up for now. I hope you have a GREAT weekend!

Love,
