Whew! I made it through the first week of school. I'm feeling very optimistic about this year's students. I have small class sizes, and nice kids that seem ready to learn Spanish. This is the first year that I haven't coached cheer leading, and I AM LOVING THE FREE TIME! Last year was so hectic; it is a great feeling to spend as much time as I need after school to make meaningful, fun lesson plans. My students don't know how lucky they are (ha ha)!
This is my favorite time of year. Fall is in the air, but the sun is still shining and it is pleasant to be outside. Kris starts hunting season next weekend, so it will be nice to have Saturdays to relax and get stuff done around the house, minus one dog and one husband. I love fall sports- we have been watching one of my dearest friends' coach our high school volleyball team, and also watching our reigning state champs football team beat the crap out of everyone! That is what is nice about being a high school teacher- the opportunity to see young, athletic talent. It's a good job, good life, and I'm happy to be living it.
** Come November, I might be singing a different tune- hell, it's only been one week! ;-)
