Happy Labor Day! School starts across the state of Michigan tomorrow though many private schools have already started. I just happen to be lucky enough to teach at a private school that follows the public school tradition of starting school the day after Labor Day.
This has been a crazy week to say the least. Normally I would have had my classroom done and ready for students by midweek but we had some major last-minute staffing and scheduling changes to deal with. It has been an emotional few days to say the least. And as someone whose digestive system bears the brunt of her stress, let's just say this has not been a good week for me health-wise either.
But tomorrow is a new day and I will have a brand new class of 6th graders ready and rarin' to learn. I hope this will be a fun and productive year and that I can learn to roll with unexpected situations a little better than I have in the past, namely this week.
Needless to say, given the crazy week I've had, reading has been kind of on the backburner so I didn't finish any books last week. So here's what I'm currently reading/listening to:
Ten Things Every Writer Needs to Know by Jeff Anderson
Until I Die by Amy Plum
Beautiful Days by Anna Godbersen
Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson
