So, I am new to blogging, so bear with me.
I have set up my classroom in groups, but have nothing on my walls, bulletin boards, ANYTHING! I have attempted to create my classroom documents; syllabus, letter to parents, laptop usage contract, expectations contract, etc. Our entire curriculum has changed and we as a department have relied on the pacing guides to plan and it is so very different, it has all been a little overwhelming! I need to get the first two weeks planned...that is my goal before Monday
Oh, and I lost my flash drive for school, that has all of my documents from the past two years on it...needless to say, I am scrambling here and recreating everything, and rather tired. So, I am using this blog to vent and reach out to others for inspiration that "this too shall pass" and things will get better. I have to get my room set up for open house tomorrow night and print up something to show parents regarding the pilot and the course their student is taking with me. And this is where I am at 4:23 on Tuesday afternoon...
So I am revisiting this at 8:10 Wednesday morning and I have thought a lot about my upcoming year and my feelings/ fears...and I realized that there is no way that I have been entrusted with all this responsibility without the ability to be successful. With what I believe there's no way that I've been given this opportunity to just fail. So all that said I'm more hopeful. It's amazing what a good workout and a good nights sleep will do :-)
