It Finally Hit Me

Today.
It hit.

I'm not going to be starting school this month. 

For the first time in 55 years, I don't need

  • new school clothes
  • a book bag
  • new shoes
  • cool pens
  • notebooks
  • chocolate and peanut butter for my desk drawer
  • a schedule
I don't need to
  • plan my last Sunday's at the lake
  • work on my sleep schedule
  • make bulletin boards
  • arrange my room
  • think about the first five days
  • make lesson plans
  • update anything

I went to school and met with the teacher who is going to be teaching my Creative Writing classes. MY Creative Writing classes. 

But not anymore. 

Throughout last year, I created binders for all the classes I taught and made day by day plans. Added all the directions, handouts, etc that I used. I knew that I wouldn't be back and wanted to leave a guide as to what I did. Trust me. I know that each new teacher will make these classes their own, but at least they have a place to start planning.

Today, I met with the new Creative Writing teacher. 
And I shared all I had.

  1. Oh, what lucky teachers to have those binders! Plan something fun for the first day of school. You may feel a little sad or perhaps a little giddy, who knows? Enjoy this new journey.
