First Day of School
Whew! The first day of school went off without a hitch. In all three classes that I teach (Popular Fiction, World Literature, and AP Literature), students were talking about Mockingjay, which was killing me since my book was delivered today after school. I love hearing students talk about books without me being the one to egg on the conversation. In fact, a couple of students plugged their ears and said, "Don't say anything! I haven't read it yet!" I loved it. It was also interesting to see them create interest in the students who weren't familiar with the books. I have a feeling that our librarians will have to get a few extra copies of the series!
Although I'm always a bit anxious to meet my new students and praying that I can weather the early morning schedule again, the day was a good one. I have high hopes for the coming school year. Tomorrow I teach the second day of students (we're on an A/B schedule), so I'm hoping it goes as well as today. My feet are sore tonight and I'm excited to go to bed, but that's a good feeling after a successful day. Now, off to bed to read a tantalizingly small portion of Mockingjay before I have to go to sleep!
