I survived the first day of school...YAY ME!
It wasn't easy at some points. I have 45 kids in each of my English 10 classes. That's a lot.
The period 4, lunch, mixed class thing was a colossal mess! Administration made an announcement that the 9th graders were to go to lunch and the uppers to go to period 4. My 9th grade period 4 students were never told to come to class. They came in after the 9th grade lunch and then got a second lunch at the end of that period because I wasn't about to give up my lunch.
It was a mess, but it should be better tomorrow. I hope!
The Advanced Drama kids were funny. And already out of control. Doing Oedipus is really going to be a shocker for them. I hope they like it.
It's going to be a great year!
