Last day of Summer

Good luck to all my teacher friends as we return to school tomorrow!

A very special good luck to all my blogger-Mommy friends who have little ones going off to kindergarten tomorrow. Super exciting!! They will have a blast, I am sure 🙂


I am heading to a new school way across the city tomorrow for a 3 week placement. I have a few fingers crossed that I get moved this week to another placement, but that is really up to the job-gods. This is probably the least prepared I’ve ever been for the first day of school, but I am not teaching in a regular classroom. I talked to the teacher whom I am covering this afternoon and she basically just said to wing it. I have no class list, barely know where my classroom is, and no curriculum to work with. Super fun!  But it apparently won’t be too bad. I have a list of things to do and I do not work alone, so somebody with experience with this class will be able to give me a hand tomorrow.


I may blog a bit less in the next few weeks as commuting for 30-60 minutes per way (depending on traffic) means that my day gets eaten up very quickly.




Choo Choo!!! Yeah, I'm not sure either

    I love that pic of you riding with Thomas! 🙂
    Good luck to you, too! You have amazing patience and perspective on this 3-week adventure. Though you won’t have as much time I hope you’ll sneak in for a few tidbits of info. We’ll want to know you’re surviving and thriving!

      haha my husband was asking why I wasn’t stressed about only having a 3 week long job 🙂 I stress about enough things!

    Phew! That sounds like a challenge but you’ll do great! Commuting is such a bummer. Good luck!

    Hope your first day went well! It is always a little more daunting to do the first day in a new school but it will all come together – it always does!
    I sort of have two first days since I am at two schools. One done today and all went smoothly.
    Here’s hoping for a great year!
