It’s a little after 9pm and I’m catching up on some reading before school starts next week. We have a week-ish of faculty meetings, and then orientation for new students. By this time next week, I think, I’ll be in the classroom.
Today I went over to school. It’s about a 4 1/2 mile commute. I need to get my bike tires pumped up, and then I’m going to try riding to and from work.
I think the biggest difference is how many emails I receive from colleagues that deal with substance, and how many emails I received from parents over the summer. I wasn’t even supposed to start checking email until this week; I discover quite a lot of people wanted to talk to me or communicate before school started.
Oh. And my teaching assignments haven’t changed twice since June.
On the other hand, I’m now running a trip to Washington DC come April. Funny, that… Didn’t I do that for years and years already? And they’re so excited that I have a school van license.
But the school day ends at 3:30 pm. So there will be time to do a great many other things.
This is going to be very different.
