First day back. Today was a great start to the semester. I’m really excited about where I’m going with my classes this semester. It’s amazing how even having just a few hours of planning before starting the semester makes SUCH a big difference. I feel much more at ease going into this semester, and I feel like a much better teacher because of it.
The best of today was that I was able to talk to my students about the future of our class. It was hard to really look ahead last semester because I felt like I was struggling to keep my head above water most of the time, so it’s a relief to have some kind of eye looking to the future.
