Odd fact: when going through previous posts for posts about teaching to possibly include in Searching for Malumba, I discovered something interesting: I have not talked about the first day of school on most of the first days of school since I’ve been blogging.
Possibly because I get home and I am too tired to qualify as a living thing. So, the short version: my homeroom girls are nice. Scary nice. Like, “I don’t believe you, and we’ll see what I think of you in a week” nice. My afternoon kids… well, let’s just say that class is still in flux, because that’s where my special education kids are going to end up and we’ve not finalized class lists yet. “In flux” sounds like a fair way to put it.
So… what is that? Cautiously optimistic? I’ll go with cautiously optimistic.
