In the teaching world they always refer to the first few days as the 'honeymoon'.....I'm planning on letting my honeymoon last until next June. It was nice to get a fresh batch! No drama within the four walls of my classroom, though there is a lot of talk amongst teachers regarding all the change this years. I tried to go out with everyone on Friday evening, but it was too negative, I want to avoid that for awhile, and I feel really bad for the new teachers. In college they always said to avoid the teacher's lounge b/c all you heard was gossip and negativity....that popped into my head Friday night as well. I definitely don't want to be one of those examples!
