Working hard on getting caught up before school starts again. I have three days before teachers are back for pre-pre planning. I think I can knock of blue and purple in that time. Last week was busy with leadership things and training before the official beginning of the year. This year is strange because in addition to the usual mandatory pre-planning time, there is also pre-pre planning. It is entirely voluntary, but they will pay teachers who want to come in early to set up their rooms and get a head start on lesson planning and curriculum.
There were a few good sunrises this week. We even managed a morning beach walk yesterday. It gets so hot though that by 8 am we were both dripping sweat. I got a haircut yesterday and have an appointment to get an eye exam on Monday. All the things teachers squeeze in during summer break. We even met friends for dinner! My teacher friend who is also wrapping up all the loose ends before the big transition back to working life and her husband who likes to mock us for talking about school too much.
