Tomorrow is my first day back to school. The students start next Monday, but we have a week of training and professional development. Much of it will be boring, some of it will be necessary, and a small bit of it will be useful. We are learning a new system by which we will take attendance, input grades, and so on, so I am looking forward to see how this will help me manage my data. We also had some curriculum changes, and I may or may not agree with them, but I will abide by them. I am lucky to work for a district that does not do "common core," and truly values our students. Wish me luck!
