School begins...summer is over...fall is arriving in CNY

I always have mixed feelings this time of year. For my WHOLE life, since I was 5 years old, school has begun for me on the Wednesday after Labor Day. The weather cools, leaves turn, and I have to go back to work after enjoying the last 10 weeks off from school.
The 2 toughest challenges I have are getting up at 6 am and learning 120 names of 6th and 8th graders. The second one is the worst because each student wants you to know their name and the older I get, the longer this takes me to accomplish.

So blogging might be a bit haphazard for the next few weeks as I spend time planning lessons, going to bed early and especially memorizing my student's names!

  2. My husband had mixed feelings about returning to school today after having the summer off. In fact, I just got done reading an article in the Wall Street Journal today about the Post-Labor Day Letdown. Wishing you a great school year!

  5. I thought of you today;----I used to hate the first week of school until my body adjusted to the new schedule. A touch of Fall here too, very mild today, air off and windows/deck door thrown wide open!
