Getting Settled In..
Okay, here it goes.
Tomorrow is the first staff meeting of the year. I've got most of my stuff settled into my classroom. I'm getting butterflies more and more as it gets nearer to the first day of school. Our division is late on starting school as compared to other divisions, which is an advantage for me to get some more prepping done.
I'm going to try to implement procedure and structure this time around. I hope it works in my favour. I feel Harry Wong is training monkeys rather than focusing on the learning. I guess there are ups and downs about having procedures.
I'm getting excited as I look through my class lists. Will they like me? Will they judge me? Of course they will. As long as I leave a good first impression, I think that's all I should worry about.
Let's hope for the positive that I have a great first day!
