    I think I had the best first day I've ever had today. No problems (just a few annoyances), my a/c got fixed, did not have more students than desks. Alright! Just need 179 consecutive days like this...

    We start Sept. 9. I've been a teacher since 2001 and we've never started this late. The year ends June 28th, equally late. Supposedly, this is a one time thing to get the formerly tracked schools onto the same calendar with the traditional schools. Summer school ends for me tomorrow, then a week off before the summer bridge program for incoming 9th graders.

    So did you also start teaching in September of 2001? I started a college teaching job that same month, the week of the Two Towers.

    I started student teaching fall semester '01. Interesting way to begin the path of education (and it was US History and Gov't, too).

    Yes, I did. My fourth day as a teacher was Sept. 11. In retrospect, I cannot imagine my career without the bonding that happened with my students that day. 8 years later, I still keep in contact with so many of them, many of whom are parents now and almost as old as I was when we met.

    We had our Back to School Night for the earliest ever last night: on the 8th day back from summer. That was weird, but it was a good turnout; 64 students represented (out of 150+ on the rosters). Today was a minimum day to offset the there-until-9pm day before.

    Today, Friday, is my wife's first official day back to school. Friday did you spake? Yep. But without kids. The Thundering Herd comes on Monday the 24th; along with the Kamakaze Parents. Then begins the 180 day count-down.
