Two Days Down 178 more to go!!!

Well I survived the first two days of school!! It was not as hard as I thought it would be to get back to school and get up early in the morning (we start our first class at 7:10am!!)....it was harder not seeing my little girl for about 8-9 hours!!!

I teach freshman health and the cool thing is that this group of freshman so far seem to be more well behaved which is key when you teach 35 in each hour and a half long class.....last year's freshman were really disrespectful and wild!! I got cussed out twice last year for the first time in my teaching career!! :(

I look forward to jumping into the meat and potatoes of the class, talking about nutrition, sex ed, and alcohol/drugs....those are the things I give great statistics for and tend to shock with the kids with all the detailed information I give them!! I know that when they leave my class they will be better equipped to make healthy decisions about their lives, which makes my job worthwhile...and they will hopefully be beneficial to society as a whole!!

Well off to bathe and put my little one to bed, eat dinner, then sleep!!! I need the rest!!! :)

Wow that is an early start! I noticed in my neighborhood the high school kids are at the bus stop at 6:30am. I don't remember high school starting that early but it has been a while :-) Good luck with you class! Stopping by from MBC Follow Me Club to follow and say hello!
