We all have them, those of us in education…those few days before the students return when we are held accountable in meeting after meeting, telling us how we did the year before and how we will do this next year. They are called inservice days, institute days, buy-back days, prep days. Ours began on Wednesday, but yesterday was the official day back. After getting our photos taken, the next step was to sign in and pick up, no, not just our folder of information, but SWAG!
We were each given a t-shirt with our new slogan for the year, a planner, and a book about assessment. This is the most I’ve ever gotten in my 21 back-to-school years. I’m so easily pleased!
