I. Survived. The. First. Day. Of. Middle. School.
Getting back into the groove is always a little challenging. Waking up is usually easier for me on the first day, because I am still one of those kids who can’t sleep before any big event (Christmas, School, Vacations, Etc…) I was out the door 15 minutes early and had class set up and prepared before a single student showed up to my door for home room! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Class went by without a hitch today (relatively speaking) and the bell rang for dismissal after a whirl wind day. It was a pretty fabulous first day of school, but I forgot how tiring teaching is. You have to be “on” all the time. You have to be up all the time (and at 6 months pregnant that feat is becoming more difficult by the day). I am currently sitting on the couch with my feet elevated and hoping that the swelling in my feet will go down! I am wondering how comical this adventure is going to become by the time I am 8 or 9 months pregnant!
I wish all the other teachers out there a great week back to school. Say a prayer for all of us and our students. It is going to be a great year!
