As I write this, it's still a few days until I start back to work. As you read this, I am in class welcoming students for another year of learning about US History. This is my seventeenth year teaching and I'm looking forward to it-- in some ways more than ever, in some ways less. I have a new classroom this year. There is a new syllabus (the stuff we teach), and every year brings its own change. I'm really wondering about class sizes. We've had a lot of people move away from southern Henderson, but that doesn't necessarily mean fewer kids per teacher-- and my new classroom has 39 student desks! Yikes! I'll keep you up to date. Have a great Autumn everyone.
