I found out recently that I will have 3 days of orientation starting Tuesday, August 30 through Thursday, September 1. I am so excited about having an actual date of when I HAVE to be there because it seems more realistic now. I am looking forward to going to DC to work on a Toyota International Teacher Program panel in a few weeks and hope to see my new apartment!
School is 4 days away from being finished for the year. While grading last Sunday afternoon, I had a remarkable thought that it would be my last Sunday afternoon for grading papers for a very long time. It still seems like a dream. My kids have been wonderful helping me clean up my room, packing some things, and recycling. They are just as eager as I am for summer. :-)
