Back to School

I am six weeks late to the party but I am heading back this morning. Not sure what I will find when I arrive on campus but I know that I will have a ton of catching up to do. I have received grade updates for my students and way too many of them have taken advantage of my not being there and are failing. I am going to have get it through the heads of these students that play time is over and they have to get busy.

This year is also my first year as department head, so I am a little concerned about what has been going on during my absence. I am sure that I will have a ton of budget and supply request to deal with during the next few days. I have been told of one issue in a classroom that needs to be addressed. I am not looking forward to dealing with the issue, but as the department chair I don’t really have a choice.

It will be interesting to see how Caleb reacts to my being on campus. I think he has enjoyed school, and has liked my not being there to look over his shoulder. I am going to try to give him his space but as a mom that is going to be really hard.

Physically I feel great. I do have still get tired easily and have occasional pain. My doctor said that I will more than likely experience both for several more weeks. I will just need to listen to my body and take breaks when necessary. I am glad that I am getting back to work and life, but know that the next few weeks will be stressful because of all of the catch up work I will need to do.
