And So it Begins
Opening day: The first day teachers are required to be at work. A day where the ENTIRE district gathers to celebrate the opening of school. We sit in the newest school inthe district and listen for at least two hours maybe three to administrators and then some administrators and a few mor administrators tell us what a great year it's going to be. Meanwhile our classrooms sit without us in them doing what we really need to be doing...putting the finishing touches on the real opening day, the one with the students. I hate opening day and to echo one of my colleagues this wasted morning, "Any day we are at work without teenagers is a wasted day." Yep.
