1. It’s been blessedly cool. One of my schools doesn’t have air conditioning but we haven’t even missed it. It’s been the coolest first week of school of my teaching career.
(And, by the way, can anyone else believe that this is my 5th (fifth!!) year of teaching!?!)
2. Working at 2 schools means that I only have to come up with an outfit every other day. AWESOME!!!!
3. At my elementary school, the music teacher is a Houghton grad and a believer. She only graduated 2 years before I did and we both definitely recognized each other. So cool! So I have one friend and ally there and am making more friends.
All in all, a good first week (that’s almost over) and then a 3-day weekend!
