This year is full of newness and change. I feel like I'm walking on wobbly terrain. The district has thrown a TON of new things at us (us meaning the faculty, administrators, and staff at all the schools) and it's a bit overwhelming. I've rearranged all the things in my classroom. I'm getting back into teaching SciTech, but it's a very fresh curriculum and I'm almost nervous to teach it. Three different classes to teach this year, and I hope to also be working with Mr. Harper and his new Physics 2 class during one of my prep periods just for fun.
I stay just as thirsty and motivated as I was my first year. I have a BAJILLION new ideas for things I want to accomplish this year. I keep telling myself to just chill, just enjoy my accomplishments and take a year to coast. But I get twitchy fast. "What can I do now?" "How can I teach this better?" "What's new in this field of study?" Can't stop. Won't stop. No other way to be.
