The first 2 days have gone pretty well. It's never overly enjoyable, since it's nothing but going over procedures, trying to learn names, and cramming a ton of information into small time constraints! You should have heard me trying to go over hallway procedures and resource schedules before they went to resource for the first time yesterday! The kids are a bit chatty, but that's to be expected. I'm staying on them so that they know my expectations. I am hoping to get that all under control very quickly.
I have some really nice kids, and I'm hoping that my reading students will be just as enthusiastic and eager to learn as last year's group. It will be hard to top them!
I did write my first referral of the year today!! 2 students got in a fight, which is an automatic referral. Of course, there is no consequence since it is the first one! I don't really care too much for that rule. Go ahead, set fire to the school! We'll forgive it this time as long as you don't do it again. We won't even call your parents!
