I want to wish everyone a great school year.  I started my 31st year, taught 2 days and now will have to miss six weeks due to a severely broken ankle.  I will miss more days this year than all the other years together.  I am not ready to give it up yet as is evidence since I had surgery 4 days ago and am crazy already!  I wish each teacher, student, principal, and parent a great year!

Ouch, Vicky! Not a great way to kick off the year. The rest of the year has to be better, right?  We've been in session for 8 days and it looks we're off to an interesting start. My group of special needs kids are pretty good, but we have a new sixth grader (not special ed, thank goodness) who has already been emergency removed twice for threatening to kill everyone. As strange as this may sound, despite this unstable child, everyone seems to be more relaxed this year than in previous years.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can get through this and have a great year.
