First Few Weeks of School

Well the first few weeks have come and gone. I have change the set-up of my desks three times, given 2 formal assessments, and survived Back to School Night. This group that I have this year are all future CEO's, company presidents, police officers, or teachers. Every last one of them want to be in charge. The biggest challenge thus far has been to have my own son as a student. He test me with his free flowing personality and challenges me with his constant questioning.

I began with 5 reading groups, but was able to rid 3 students of "summer brain" and moved them up into another group. This brings my total to 4. I would love one day to have only three, but this is my reality.

All that aside, I am so happy to be back in the swing of things. Stay tuned, for the next update.
