Teachers start back on the 29th and we have kids coming in on September 6th. We did have to put in a day on the 22nd, because the administration miss counted the number of teacher days. So they gave us the option of the 22nd or extending the year one day at the end. Most of us took the 22nd while we are still fresh.

August 30th and 31st we're back attending District workshops etc, students start back the following week!
I'm looking forward to this year ~ my assignment is finally one that I've dreamed of!
Plus my youngest starts Gr 12 this year (different school than the one I teach at) I'm so excited for her!!
And even tho I still have holidays left....the "prep hat" landed on my head Sunday night and I'm already getting ready for the upcoming year.... sounds like others are in the same mode!
Have a great year everyone!

My 1st official teacher day is Aug 31st. Then we have a 2nd teacher day on Sept 1st and my students start on Sept 2nd. My daughter (who goes to a different school district) starts on Sept 8th.

However...I have 2 full days of PD for our new k-2 curriculum on Aug 24 and 25. AND 2 half days of in building PD for planning and incorporating the Daily 5 and Cafe Model into our new curriculum with my grade level team members.

I am hoping that my building will be open on the 22nd and 23rd so that I can start assembling my classroom. My co-teacher and I moved to a new room and now we need to finish putting our stuff away plus we need to decide how to arrange the furniture. We are looping with our kids from Kindergarten to 1st grade and I am really looking forward to seeing them again.

I teach in a year-round school, so I've already had two weeks of inservice and three weeks with my students. With SparkPeople, I've had an excellent start to the school year. My husband and I are getting up to walk at 5:15, and I'm in my classroom well-fed and ready to rock by 7:15. The endorphins from the early morning exercise are lasting me until pretty late in the day, and I'm sleeping better than I used to, which is helping me be the teacher I intend to be.

What others can do, I can do, too.

emoticon Diggin in here in Oklahoma City, we went to a year round schedule so we have two weeks in already, we reported on July 27th, but the nice thing is in October we get two weeks off, and then it will almost be like college as in December, we get 3 weeks off. In the spring we get another 2 weeks.

Two months off is enough I think for a summer break, I feel plenty rested and usually by August, am starting to get bored anyhow, having those two weeks in the nicest weather of the year is going to be awesome. So far I think I like this idea. Will let you know... and excuse me if I rub it in come October, so get your licks in on me now. emoticon

Everyone have a great school year - getting closer and closer to all of us being back at school. Don't forget YOU are important so take at least 10 minutes a day to do some fitness, even walking around the area counts (without kids!!)

Like someone else mentioned, Michigan doesn't allow schools to start before Labor Day, and exemptions are very rare. I start back August 25th, and we won't have students until September 6th.

Last year I taught 8th and 9th grade English. This year, I have 9th and 10th English, plus Journalism and Creative Writing. I am going to be very busy!

First day back today! Open House tomorrow, kids on Monday. (They sure give us a lot of time to ease in, eh?) Spent the whole day in meetings, was exhausted when I got home, but then I checked in to Spark People and it made me so sad that I wouldn't get to keep my daily 10 min exercise streak going that I got off my butt and ran a mile. Woohoo! emoticon

IA doesn't allow starting before Labor Day either, but everyone puts in for an exemption. I'm not sure I"m ready to go back, although I found out for sure today that I'll be sharing my room with someone different than last year. That drops my stress level already. She was escorted out of the building with 3 days left. They tried to fire her, but she still has a job (poor kids) in another building.

Wow after reading all of your posts I feel like a slacker.
Our first teacher day is August 31st. The first student day is September 7th. It is state law in Michigan that school does not start until after Labor Day.

Last year I taught 1st grad and this year I am teaching 2nd grade.

we would literally astound ourselves."

I report back on August 15th. The students come back on August 18th.

I teach a self contained middle school room. Right now I only have 7 students on my roster, but my class will be full (10 students) by Oct. 1st. It works this way every year!

I would like two more weeks off, but am ready to go.

Teachers report on the 24th, kiddos come back on the 29th.

I have lots to do to get ready! My room was painted this summer, so I have to get out everything that I packed away!

Teachers start on Aug. 15 and the students return on Aug. 22. Same program (developmental special education) but will have one new staff member and five new students (at least - someone else can always enroll).

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.

Teachers report Monday August 15; students the next day. I am in a new classroom so I will be going in next week to set up the room and to prepare materials for the first few weeks.

new teacher orientation Aug 10, 11, 15 and 16 (this is my second year technically, but I was hired after the orientation last year so I have to do it. The 10-11 is part of the one week I gave myself off from teaching summer school!)

Teachers go back full time Aug 18; kids come back Aug 25

I am teaching self-contained middle school, though I will have students 5-8 grades. Last year, my class was all students with mild to moderate ID. This year, class will include autism, Down Syndrome, physical disabilities, and others as well as ID.

I go back on Tuesday (just for that day), then I go back full time on the 8th and the kids start on the 15th. My job (ESL) is always different because I never know how many kids or what level I am going to have and since I'm certified K-12, I may get anybody!

Teachers start tomorrow (Aug. 1) and students start on Wednesday (Aug. 3). I will be teaching the same thing, in the same classroom. However, I have added a lot to my classroom since this year I had time to decorate it. I also will be including more drama within my music class.

I start the 15th and kids start the 18th. I'm in a different classroom and have a BD student coming in. No, that's not what I teach. emoticon I've done it before.

When do you report back to school and will you be teaching anything new?



I reported back this past Monday and have put in for a new position, but it will take weeks to find anything out!
