Day One: Complete!

It was a great first day at Peterson today!  I really enjoyed all of my classes today and I look forward to working with the students in my classes to make great writers.  We started each class today talking about dress code from the handbook, then played Back to School Black Jack to learn about each student.  This was a lot of fun.  It's always interesting to hear the information students choose to share.  The homework I gave my students tonight is to get their Welcome Letter signed and ready to turn in first thing in class tomorrow.  Tomorrow we will start writing in our journals- a practice my students will be VERY familiar with throughout the year.
This is going to be a great year!

New School, New Beginning

There is a certain smell to the air when it's time for school to start once again.  It's that time again, ladies and gentlemen, to set your alarms, pack your backpack with all your supplies, and get yourselves to school by 7:45 Monday morning.  It's a new school year!  It's a new school (for me too)!  I'm looking forward to sharing the upcoming year with you in my English class on the Missions Team.  We are going to have a terrific year.  I look forward to meeting all of you very soon!

I'll see you all on Monday,
