How cool is this? I got my final schedule of classes, a full six days before school starts. Not bad:
1st per. – 7th/8th choir
2nd per. – 6th choir
3rd per. – Black & Gold
4th per. – Music theory
5th per. – Lunch
6th per. – HS choir
7th per. – Tech
8th per. – 5th grade
9th per. – Prep
I think putting morning announcements on the district site at 1:30 p.m. is not ideal, but it’ll all work out. That’s what lunch at your desk is for, right? And something totally new this year (this will interest you, Bando): I no longer share a period with any band at any level. How awesome is that? Good for Abe and the bandies, too. Had to give up 5th choir for it, but that’s OK. I’ll endeavor to make singers out of ’em anyhow, like I did in the early days.
Only bad part of this schedule? No more lunches with my awesome fiends Wendell, Stoney and Abe.
Today I am off to the school house to meet with the guy who installed the fantastic new mixer board and speakers in my classroom. We scheduled the training session for closer to school time so this old dino-bot could retain a bit more information. After that, I print out, fold and stuff 150 letters that will be mailed home to parents, and try to stop by to meet my new super and new middle school principal. Definitely not a stressful day: a good way to begin.
Hey. I thought today was Thursday.
Commenting on schedules is a slippery slope, my friend. So, I will pass… though, all I will say is “I feel yo pain, sister”.
Previous comment: We both had a good laugh over the whole “thanks for you guys telling me about West Wing” comment. I have all the dialogue from West Wing memorized (even used a line in an interview yesterday — and she recognized it!). Heffe… not so much. Trying to get him into the show Political Animals. We also like “Suits”, also on USA. Plus “White Collar”. We’re trying to fill the gaps of time between the Newsroom and when BBC Merlin comes out in Sept. and BBC Sherlock comes out next Summer! Ha. Anyway. Good post. It is becoming a morning ritual for us…
BBC Merlin — THANKS A LOT
Now I have another 4-year series to add to the list of catch-ups. LOL That’s enough – no more!!
I’m glad you enjoy this little nonsense endeavor. As silly as it is sometimes, it has brought me a lot of joy — and some friends, too!
You are WELCOME (for Merlin). And thank you for your writing…
Nice schedule, Lindabird! I didn’t realize that you started in just 6 days, though! I hope and pray you have a very good year, honey. May the drama stay away from your classroom door, and may the “retirement clock” tick ever faster! :0)
I hope I have a decent year, Mave. It should be — the kids make it great. And whatever do you mean by “retirement clock?” Oh…you certainly don’t mean that little blue thing near my systray that says 7 years, 9 months, 15 days, 17 hours, 36 minutes and 52 seconds, do you????
LOL! Yes, that’s the one I’m talking about and you’re dreaming about!
Wow that mixer looks mixalicious!!! You are going to have some fun with that, Dino-Bot!!!
Last period is prep. I like the looks of that, do you like the looks of that?
(PS H has been researching prices of things airplane-ish )
I lurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrve last period prep!!! It’s the best.
And everything is crossed that the airlines are having a HUGE CLEARANCE SALE!!!!
HEY – updates on the new PreSonus mixer & the rest of your gear!! **SMEWCH**
I had my training session and it’s going to be fantastic! And those little monitors can move some air. I’ve been able to get rid of a BUNCH of hardware (CD player, component speakers, woofer on the floor), and just go with the MBP, iTunes, and this recording software (I forget the name at the moment). It’s great!!
