My first three days back with the kids at school.
This year I'm teaching three 8th grade Social Studies classes, one 8th grade Remedial Math class and a Study Skills class (whatever that is). The kids all seem nice, but it's still in the "Honeymoon" period when they are still on there best behavior. My Math class is low and full of some knuckleheads that I'm going to have to keep my thumb on, but it'll all work out. I'm sure they'll be my favorite by the end of the year. why do I always seem to like the Knuckleheads most. I'll struggle with the Study Skills class since I never studied in school myself. How do I teach something that I've never done? We have a new Vice Principal, I'll have to wait and see how she works out. Our last VP that left was a disaster. Ryan's given up on blogging and that's a disappointment, so I have no friends that blog. It'll make it hard to keep posting when I have no one to talk to about it. Steve Oster, my friend and teammate last year left Palm Middle School to teach Science in Riverside, that makes it difficult because I have no one my really to talk to about problems at school. Ryan is a great guy, but he's not married with kids and alot younger, Hopefully he'll understand.
