It must be the beginning of August or really close. I can't the up coming school year out of my mind. I have a million things I desperately want to get moving. I've got the first month's worth of lesson plans done...hope to have through XMAS done by the time teacher in services start at the end of August. I've done a lot of studying and I'm excited to get started again.
No, this is not my first year teaching. It's actually the start of year number 11 for me (the bulk of which have been in Jr. high). I'm as excited to start this year as I was my first year as an experienced teacher. (I consider my first year in the profession training time).
I've taken 2 classes this summer and consumed over 15 new books on how to better teach. Teaching is both an art and a science. I've got the science part covered, I'm ready to start the art!
Well, back to lesson planning. Heading up to Seminary Hill for a little hike soon as I finish the History lessons.
Thanks for reading.
