|at Two Writing Teachers!|
Students come tomorrow, and I'm so excited. Last year at this time, I was a nervous wreck: new school, new subject, new age level. I barely slept for days beforehand.
This year, I've been sleeping soundly through the night! I'm comfortable in my school, I'm elated to have my own room, and I'm truly looking forward to seeing my students. One of the great things about teaching ELLs is that I get to have many of the same students several years in a row. I keep thinking about stories I can't wait to tell certain students, new books I can't wait to show them, and conversations I can't wait to have with them. I can't wait to check in with the students I've worried about and get caught up with the others. And of course, I can't wait to meet my new freshmen.
I'd love to write more, but there are still a few last-minute details to complete tonight. However, I just have to share something exciting that happened recently. Last week, I opened up my email to find a surprising message:

Wow-congratulations Jennifer. I'm sure you wowed them in the interview. I loved hearing all of those ideas you had when you were working out of the carts. And remember when you had to change rooms? What adventures you've had as a teacher! Best of wishes tomorrow-thinking of you!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Linda. Doesn't that seem like forever ago? I love that you and others also remember those crazy cart times. It just feels like we're old, old friends! :-)Delete

Kudos to you! What an awesome start to the year! Also, I think it is awesome that your school starts on a Wednesday - middle of the week, yes! A short week to begin the year. Continue to enjoy!!ReplyDelete
