What a week!
3rd grade planning meetings, at school and at Starbucks (to get away from the construction noise).
County assessment training.
Interviewing because more kids are coming and we need 2 more 3rd grade teachers.
Beginning and ending of the day staff gathering to hear the building updates.
Open houses moved to the Middle School because building not quite ready.
Training on how to use the SmartPanel, how to use the furniture, how to open the moving wall into studio space, how to take online attendance.
Some trainings while the fire alarm was being tested.
I celebrate the amazing and flexible staff I have joined to open a brand new school – Discovery ES in Arlington VA.
I celebrate that it is only Saturday and it is a 3-day weekend.
I celebrate all the efforts by architects, construction workers, furniture delivery men, mulch crew, janitorial cleaning crew, volunteer parents, and my staff.
I celebrate that on Tuesday, September 8, 2015 I get to guide a group of 22 third grades for the first time ever in Room 212.
I promise we will honor all the hard work spent to build our school and will learn well at Discovery.
