What Do Teachers Do on Their 1st Day of School?

 They hit the snooze button for an hour, that's what! I had all these wonderful plans for what I was going to get done between 4:30 and 5:30 this morning, but apparently, my subconscious felt that hitting snooze every 15 minutes was better........ :|
          ANYway, I am forcing myself to make time for breakfast - banana w/peanut butter & honey, and a gallon of coffee. :) We'll have a special 'Welcome Back' breakfast at school this morning, so of course, I'll eat again then! :)
        As I've said before, one of my 'life' goals is to take more pictures, so get ready - later today (fingers crossed that I actually remember to take the pictures!!) I'll post more of my '1st Day Back' pictures. Today is just the first day back for teachers, we don't get our kiddos until next week. Just brace yourself the awesomeness that is to come!!! ;)
What time do you get up in the morning? Is that with or without snooze??
What was your favorite grade/subject in school?
I'm a little partial to 5th grade! :) My favorite subject has always been Reading - I was an English major in college (not an education major - wanna talk about a tough transition - whew!)


  1. Happy first day! Oh the First day jitters... ever read that book? I used to every year with my 2nd graders. This time of the year is so bittersweet!

    1. I've heard of it, but I haven't actually read it - I'll have to swing by our library and check it out! My oldest son is going into 2nd grade this year - eek!

  2. Love this! I am a 5th grade teachers (this year anyways) too! I work at a year round school though so I am already in with my kids this year... we started the 2nd week in July.

    Good luck with the first few days!!

    1. Honestly, I think I would like the whole year-round thing - no 'summer slide' to deal with and you get a good break every few weeks! I hope you're enjoying your 5th graders - I think it's a great grade to teach!!! :)
