Guess what, y'all?!

I got a job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ah!!!!!!!!!!

as you can see I am very into the exclamation mark at the moment!!  : )

Yep, that's right. A job. A real live teacher job! bah! You are lookin' at the newest teacher on the block.

9th grade English.

That's freshmen. Freshmen. Big, scary, smelly, wonderful freshmen.

And school starts on Wednesday. Wednesday. That's one, two, three, four, five days away. Yes, five days from now I will be standing in front of my new students, sitting at my teacher desk, in my classroom.

Ah!!!!

And yay!!!

So, any teachers out there? Any freshmen/high school teachers? Help? How do you go about getting ready for your first day of school? Syllabus? Seating chart? Decorations? Expectations? What do you do? Where do you start?! Any and all help or advice would be most very welcome!!! also, prayers would be wonderful. I will need them :D ha. so will my students!

crazy!

five days!

CONGRATS on getting a job!!! You will do great!!!! :)

If you need any help, I am a fourth grade teacher but would be more than happy to help in any way.

YAY! I am so so so happy for you!! I'm not high school but since I just started my biggest piece of advice would be to sit down and think about what you actually expect from your kids, b/c that's a huge discussion topic the first few days.

I'll be praying for you! You'll do great! :)

Congrats! I'm so happy. I'll email you a few things. I have 8th, 10th, and 11th graders, so freshman are essentially the same :)

Congrats congrats! And good luck!
