TODAY WAS MY FIRST OFFICIAL DAY AS A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER!
Sorry about the all-caps, but I’m just really excited. I got to school super early this morning so that I could attempt to get my head on straight before the students got there, and then I waited. Bell after bell, students came and went, and I survived. And I loved every minute of it.
Also, a coach yelled at me today because he thought I was a student. The only good thing about that was that it was in front of some of my students from last year, so we all got a good laugh. Honestly, though, that’s sort of been my worst fear, so I’m glad we got that over with…and hopefully there won’t be any repeats 🙂
I LOVED meeting all of my new students, and I’m super excited about this year with them, but the best of today was each time I was encouraged by one of my students from last semester. Each time it was a rush for a hug and an “I’m so excited you’re here!!” It was definitely exactly what I needed to hear on my first day back. I love my life.
