August Currently...and Time to Think About Back to School!

Sorry...I'm laughing at this post's title...as hubby often says, it probably takes me until mid August to get out of school mode...just in time to get back into it and ready for September!

For anyone who read my July Currently and post, the end result is that I was not successful in getting the new principal position at my school. I didn't realize how much I wanted it until I didn't get it...but, after a good cry, a few days of feeling sorry for myself, and some time spent with my 16-month old granddaughter, I turned my head around and started looking at what I will be doing for the fall. I have spent the past month working on new curriculums (to me), getting lots of "Back to School" things made and organized, like new labels, schedules, etc., and just trying to figure out what the new school year is going to look like...

Anyway, once again I am linking up to Farley's Currently over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade.

 
 
Well, I don't think that there is much to explain here...the best part of my summer so far is any time I get to spend with my family...hubby, our son, our daughter and her family...so, hopefully I will get to do lots more of that before it is time to get back to work formally!
 
I hope that those of you still on summer break get the chance to enjoy your time to rejuvenate before the new school year begins...and for those of you already back to work, I hope that it has gone as smoothly as it can, and that you are enjoying a new year with your new class!
 
I look forward to sharing some pictures and thoughts for Back to School over the next month!
 
Take care,
Tammy

I'm sorry that you didn't get the principal job, but everything happens for a reason. It must mean that those little kiddos that will be in your class this year need you the most. By being in the classroom you are touching the lives of all those kids on a daily basis. You'll be a principal in the future when the time is right.

Hi Tammy! I laughed out loud when I read your hubby's take on getting out of school mode just in time to get back in it... mine says the same thing :) I thought it might change as the years went on, but now I think it will always be this way. I'm sorry to hear about not getting the principal job, but I know that your students this year will be so happy to have you as their teacher! Wishing you a wonderful August!

I'm so sorry you didn't get the principal position. I hope you have a great school year and are able to enjoy your family! I'm the same way, by the time I'm ready to slow down and enjoy summer, it's time to go back to work.
