So I have completed my first week back to work. After long hours of workshops and meetings, I feel somewhat prepared in the class. The kids first day back is tomorrow on Monday and I'm so nervous. More nervous to meet the parents than the kids. I got to meet a couple of my students today for Meet and greet. A few of them dropped off school supplies. I forgot how teeny tiny these kids are coming from kindergarten. All of the kids are soo small! I have quite a few cuties in the class and a lot of hyper little boys.
Teachers deserve to get paid overtime for all the hours we put in. I was at work from 7:30am till 7:30pm last Friday. I'm completely drained and exhausted. I had to force myself to leave work. There is always things to do in this class. Whether it be labeling folders, storing supplies, making copies, preparing for next week. ah! I just know it's going to be chaos next week.
So here's a glimpse of what my class looks. I took this a few days ago so I obviously have more things on my shelf.
Wish me luck tomorrow guys! I'm going to need it!
