Not a complaint about this year at all. It’s a lot and the shift from public ed to private has been steep, but it has really been a great year. I’m not trying out many new ideas, yet. Everything is so new that there’s no need to shock the system. We’re all pretty shocked already. Don’t expect to see my kiddos sitting on the floor anytime soon. But you never know… Oh, wait I do change my desks around every 3 days. So far I haven’t had to repeat a pattern.
My biggest challenge is getting my arms around the schedule and my daily activities. I feel like, today, I’m really starting to figure it out. I should be much better as time goes on.
The parents are amazing. I thought the parent support was big when I was just a parent, but now I know the details. I have a fantastic group of parents. I’m looking forward to working with them for this year.
This is going to be disturbing, but I haven’t been stressing bow ties this year. I do wear one or two a week, but I can’t honestly say I’ve worn 5 ties in a week. So if I make it through the entire crop this year I’ll be doing good.
