I had my first week of work at the new school! Overall, I think it went well. I like my coworkers so far, and aside from one small panic attack, I had a good week. My class sizes are small (12 in two and 14 in two, and one class with 8), they use the same reading intervention program I am used to, and they use the same IEP software I am used to (and I love both these programs). Next week the students come back and I hope that will go as smoothly. It’s strange to be teaching in a rural district. I have spent the past 13 years in urban settings.
Because I have to have a mask on all day, I had to switch back to my contacts. I hate wearing contacts because my eyes are so sensitive, but it has to happen. Last week wasn’t terrible, but I switch back to my glasses as soon as I get home.
I’ve also found some masks I have that I like, and some I don’t. So I’m on the hunt! Sadly, I am incapable of sewing (one, I don’t have a sewing machine, and 2 I have been banned from ever using one since every time I tried I nearly broke them). A friend made me a couple and I really love the fit. I haven’t been able to find them already made anywhere! Sigh.
Wish me luck next week! My coworkers have started a pool to see how long we will be in school before we are shut down again (we had a teacher test positive on Friday; everyone who sat by them at all the district meetings and such has to get tested). I’m thinking it will be about 6 weeks before the cases get too high for us to continue.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
