Another Year Has Come

Here we are, the start of another school year. As of today I have 29 students. However, that may change tomorrow. There are only 4 6th grade classes this year and we all have 29-31 students. The first week is always the toughest. It takes some time to train a class the way you want them. They are good kids, but they really like to talk, a lot. I teach at a year round school so I start earlier in the summer. I work 9 weeks, then get 3 weeks off. I'm not sure I could go back to teaching a traditional school calendar. This year I'll get my 3 weeks off in October, 5 weeks off in January (this includes Christmas break), and another 3 weeks off in April. These off track times are great for vacations all throughout the year.
