And here we go, for the first day of school. Sort of. One teacher planning day, then students on Wednesday, for what will probably be mostly an extended homeroom and paperwork. Two "real" potential days of school on Thursday and Friday; I'll do introductions and group activities on Thursday and a diagnostic test on Friday. I'm teaching the same classes again ... two sections of Algebra 2, two robotics classes. I have no idea who's going to be in them, but at least all the material is familiar.
I feel like I'm in the groove now. A few years out, that groove will become a rut, I'm sure, but for now I'm very happy to be in a comfortable place.
