It's here! Today's the day that I get to head back into my classroom and begin the slow process of making it a fully functioning classroom again. Can you tell I'm excited? It's 6:57 AM. I've been awake since 6:30 with no alarm clock. I considered going back to sleep when I remembered that I get to open my purchase order package when I get to school. My heart skipped a beat and I was instantly wide awake. Yikes! I'm a nerd.
I'm incredibly thankful to be walking into the same classroom for the second year in a row. Check out the mess I had on my hands last year after day one:
Empty cabinets and shelves and junk everywhere! This year, my cabinets are full and I even have a few bulletin boards done. My calendar is even set for August! It's a wonderful feeling not having to start from scratch.
I'm going to carry my excitement into the kitchen and make some breakfast, watch Olympics highlights, and dust off the 'ol school key.
