Well, at least back to work. Today is my least favorite of all days: teacher inservice days. There is nothing more frustrating than sitting in a room with hundreds of other teachers, being lectured at. I understand the necessity of it all, but it’s long and tedious.
But, in more positive thinking: this is going to be a great year. It’s my second year in first grade. I feel more prepared to face the challenge that first grade is. My room is coming together. My thoughts are coming together. I feel good and I feel cautiously optimistic about what’s to come.
