I truly believe that my brain and body purposefully forgot what "back to school" was. After my first year of teaching last year, I barely remember September. So when Tuesday rolled around, I was trying to recall what the first day was like last year. Nothing came to mind. Blank nothingness. I'm sure that most students felt the way that I did: confused, chaotic, excited and very happy when 3:00pm came. I love teaching. But WOW! The first day is hectic. Luckily, things start to smooth out a couple of days later. Like all things, there is a period of adjustment. Many of my homeroom students are adjusting to lockers, and moving from classroom to classroom. Believe me when I say, I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL. The hectic pace of September is endemic in schools everywhere. It will get easier. The locker combinations will eventually file themselves into your brains. I know that this year will be full of great things. September is, well...September. Give it time and the pace will return to normal. We are all in this together.
