School starts soon and I'm in meetings all day long. I really want to be in my classroom getting it ready. Instead, I'm sitting in meetings about how to sign in properly in the morning, how to log in on the school computer properly, and how to sign out and account for your curriculum and textbooks. I don't give a flying fig about any of this. I just want to hang up my posters and put away my teaching gear. Tomorrow we have important meetings scheduled about good stuff like how to put the id tag lanyard around your neck. I can't wait.
I'm calm about the whole thing, though. I know everything will be ready in time. If not, the kids won't know anyway. We don't use much school stuff during the first week. The first days of school are all about building the team. I'll be in front of my students soon and it will be great. My end of summer angst has faded. I'm looking forward to meeting my new kids. I'm excited to be teaching again.
I'm sad because my summer is winding down. Soon, the meetings will begin in preparation for the school year to come. I love these summer days. It's wonderful to eat, drink, pee, and work on my schedule.
