Okie doke …
Monday: signed my contract, resigned from my old district, packed my classroom
Tuesday: trained all day on new software (for me & for the district … score!)
Wednesday: spent 3 hours working on something I think was supposed to take me 3 days. Why? Dunno.
Thursday: was still expected to work on the 3 day project. Went out & explored the district while I waited for callbacks on the project.
Friday: first cluster meeting, got a chance to introduce myself & decided at the last second to share that I’m training for a triathlon … that got ooo’s & ahh’s and a few skeptical glances. Oh well … I know I can wax any of them in a (walking) 5k, fuggetabout adding some swim & some bike! Just ask the Dobie folk I did 5ks with.
Oh yeah, Hub loaded a GPS navigator on my cellphone. Choice! So glad he did … I have used the HECK out of it in the past two days and will more than likely continue use it through the rest of the school year. Thank goodness I have a shiny new car!
So all-in-all, my first week was a good week. Next week will be mostly all staff development. I hope to meet my principals at some point. Teachers report to their campuses on Friday.
Feels weird not focusing on first day of school preparations. I’ve got a whole lot of other things I’m focusing on these days. Kinda cool, actually
And so a new school year begins!
