Back to school 2017

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

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.


  1. Why didn't your school close when all he others did? Did a lot of kids not show up for the day? Im glad you are not giving up blogging because I love your blog. Anne Hoyle ( a scrap gal)

  2. How cool to see your school from the inside! "Your" (the US) furniture looks nothing like ours. In Austria kids share a desk.

    All the best for the new school year!

  4. Aside from the family, schools hold the formation of successful men and women. Insight, self-awareness, understanding others and choice of vocations depend on good mentors.
