Sadly, school is going to start all too soon. My first day back to work is August 16th. We’ll be in Vegas the 12th-15th though, so I’m hoping that will help distract me.
Suffice it to say that I’m not ready to go back. A year ago, I was looking ahead to this summer with wonderful anticipation (I mean, DUH, right? I was getting married!). It was going to be the best. summer. ever.
Suddenly it’s almost gone. What the heck?
My mission this week is to re-evaluate how I run my classes and figure out what I can do differently and better. I also want to get my syllabus and other first day things ready to print and copy. I can’t finalize them until I know my exact teaching assignment, but I can at least get the basics done.
I also need to think more about how to run dance production. I want to do it similar to how it’s been done in the past, but I also will probably want to make some changes. Hmmm…
In general, I’m just trying to psyche myself up to start a school year. The beginning of a year is always challenging and a week feels like a month. No joke. Last year, September alone felt like it was three months. I sure hope that isn’t the case again.
*jumps up and down excitedly* <~~~ that’s me getting myself pumped to start a new school year 😛
