The new school year begins.
The alarm woke me up this morning, begrudgingly. A couple of teacher days, a four-day weekend, then the new kiddies come in next Monday.
I like getting back into routine even though it means that soon I will be getting up in the dark. That’s the worst part. Once I’m up and awake I’m fine with the rest of the routine-filled day. I bet our days are not so different…
6am – Get up & get ready
6:30-6:45am – Get picked up to go to work
7:00am – Arrive at school and prep for the day
8:00 – 11:05am – Pick up the students & teach
11:10am – Lunch
11:55am – 3:00pm – Pick up the kids from lunch then teach some more
3:05pm – ? – Clean up, prep, plan for the next day, maybe attend a meeting
Late afternoon – yoga or run
Early evening – get home, change, cook/order/eat, veg out, shower
Between 10:00pm-11:00pm – Bed
Then wake up and do it all again. Makes me feel like Bill Murray on Groundhog’s Day…
And by Friday, I’m ready for no routine 🙂

HI Tammy, just a quick question. A couple of times in your schedule above, you say..PICK UP THE STUDENTS…. don’t the kids just come to the classroom?
HI Barb! We always pick up our students as a group in the am, after lunch, and after a gym/library, etc. In middle schools they will go to the class independently but not in elementaries.
Tam You probably make the days interesting to the students you teach and they in turn learn a lot from you. Have a fun fall and I hope the rest this new school year you have fun!!!! 🙂 Sabrina *aka
