Officially Back to School!

Phew! I am so exhausted! I couldn't sleep at all last night...too excited to start the school year! Today we had our first day back and started off the day with our annual district wide presentation. Each year the district gets a keynote to come and speak to us in hopes of giving us new insights and starting the year off with a bang. This year's speaker was FANTASTIC! Dr. Steven Layne made me laugh and cry, all in the same day. His most recent PD book, Igniting a Passion for Reading, sounds wonderful! My superintendent recommended it to us last year, but I hadn't gotten to it. It is now on my must read list! Wow! I've never walked away from a presentation with so much excitement and "aha" moments. Seriously, you should get your district to look into getting him!

We then went back to our schools and had a meeting with the entire staff. We broke for lunch, then all 5 elementary schools met together to listen to Dr. Layne speak again. Wow, just great, great stuff! I'm so fortunate to have seen him speak. I gained a lot from it.

Tomorrow we have all day to work in our rooms to prepare for open house. I AM SO EXCITED! As I finish up my last few preparations for open house, do you have any advice for me? Things I should include...things I should avoid...? I love hearing your feedback!

Sorry for the short post, but I am worn out!

Until tomorrow,


  1. Get prepared to be pen pals with my class :)

  2. I'm sure you will be great! Be organized, share what you need, and I always have a toothbrush and mouthwash available right before (just in case!). And coffee...lots of coffee. :) Good luck!
