This year marks my 24th year of teaching. Most of the time, it certainly doesn't feel like it's been that long, more than half of my life in this career. I still love what I do most of the time, though I definitely get frustrated with the administrative aspect of things sometimes. I thought you might enjoy seeing a few of my back-to-school photos from this year.
First day of school selfie in my classroom
2nd day of school selfie with the bestie (she retired more than a year ago but has returned to sub for this first semester in the English department for a colleague who left suddenly right before school began this year)
Taking a shot of the bestie so she could update her Facebook account
My student photo bulletin board is in the works
Last weekend, football season opened with the Rafferty's Bowl; I'm happy to report that the Purples opened the season with a win on 8/19.
Ours was the only school system in the area in session for the eclipse of 8/21/17. Almost 1300 students and around 100 staff members headed out to the football stadium to witness the total eclipse. I took some pics with the bestie to commemorate the occasion.
It's been an exciting start to year 24, and I'm looking forward to a great year ahead for my students and me.
