We had "back to school night" on Thursday. At work until 8:00. Our first middle school social event (retro rollerblading) on Friday. At work until 7:00 last night.
The year has started smoothly. Everything is going well, although I'm in overload already with meetings. I was out a half day this week with a district meeting, and will be out another day this month and 4 full days in October. I've attended 3 IEPs already, and have another 3 scheduled before the end of September.
Our Friday schedule is a tangled mess, and likely to be so for some time to come. That's a whole post in itself.
Still, the kids are doing great, and that's what counts.
I slept 3 hours late this morning, and I brought home a crate of paperwork that didn't get done after school on Thursday and Friday.
What were we thinking, tacking the social on to the night after bts? 8O
Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results. -- John Dewey
