In a year where we know more funding isn't coming, this is extra bad news.
Now that everyone has gotten used to each other, it's time to see where the line is.
And we're back! The first day has come and gone. Here's what you missed while you were getting to know your students.
Congratulations, Mr. President.
Sometimes they know just what to say to warm your heart.
Every year they ask the same questions when they get back from summer.
Teenager or not, they aren't as grown up as you'd think.
Anyone else get new responsibilities over the summer?
How was your first day back?
Sometimes staff development is inspiring. This wasn't one of those times, Dallas ISD.
Whether you're ready or not, the kids are coming. Here's what you missed while you were getting your classroom ready.
I'm a little surprised, but not entirely. Why? There are a few reasons that I tried to work through in my head.
Anyone else leave all their cleaning and organizing until just now?
Today is the day where our trustees decide if voters should get to decide if and how much taxes should increase to support kids.
My initial thought is that there is nothing worse than sitting next to my principal in long meetings. Why does it matter?
Sitting in administrator meetings is pretty informative stuff.
Have you ever been to a school that made you want to get back in your car and leave at first sight?
If you have the opportunity to see what's happening over at Cristo Rey, you should definitely take advantage of it. I hope to return many times over the course of this school year.
Goodbye July. Hello August! Time for school.
I observed a new teacher alongside a few students. Interesting perspectives.
It feels good to hear. It feels better to say it and mean it.
Yesterday was rough, but today was easier.
This is something I read today that I really enjoyed. Strong blog from Chazz Robinson.
Anyone else get up and pretend like they had school today?
