My first period is grade 10 academic science - good kids so far, but a bit chatty, as is normal. I have prep right after that - ugh. I do not like prep in the mornings - I like to get my classes done or at least 2 of 3 before I have a break to do prep work. Oh well, the good thing is that it's with Marta and we have fun, but the bad thing is that we distract each other and neither of us get as much done as we want. After lunch I have grade 12 college chemistry, which can be a tough class, but I seem to have pretty good kids so far (fingers crossed they stay that way). Last period is another section of grade 10, and then seem very smart and focused. So far, so good with all of them!
No drama yet, no kids with too much attitude, no teachers driving me up the wall, so it's good! There are a few routine changes this year - announcements & anthem at the end of first period versus the beginning. I liked in the beginning to get myself settled into first period, but it seems like a better use of time now. We're also doing a period flip like we did at Austin - halfway through the morning classes are switched (1 with 2), and afternoon classes are switched (3 with 4). This is so coaches and teams don't always miss the same class and that our preps change a bit.
Wow...I thought teaching classes would be more interesting...I need to write down the funny things they do and say so I have more to mention...maybe it'll be better after the first week!
