Since going on summer break, I’ve had many negative sentiments directed my way from the working populus, namely “Suck it!” and other choice phrases indicating jealousy of my summer break.
Well, they can all stop now. Because I am definitely back at work. Yes, starting today I’ll have over 100 new 13-year-olds to mold, shape and torture. If you hear a whimpering sound coming from a child later, it’s likely they’ve been in my classroom. I run a tight ship, and the first two weeks are all about putting the fear into the children.
I’ve been doing this for awhile; however, I still get nervous! Last year’s class was like a sweet dream—they were great. I always worry about the little hellions I’ll be getting.
Anyways, if you think of it, send some good vibes this way.
Or a bottle of wine.
