Back To School Blues – #MondayBlogs

Can you believe it?

Six weeks have flown by, filled with weddings, writing and more writing! But it is time to head back through those hallowed doors of my school, ready to start another year of teaching.

I am slightly apprehensive, this year. There are a few changes to my professional role. Some of you may remember. I mentioned it before the end of term.

This year, I am not just responsible for the Nursery class. I will be teaching two days a week in Reception, and three days in my beloved Nursery. Additionally, I will be taking responsibility for the School Council, Eco Schools, and Healthy Schools with a colleague of mine… AND (there’s always an AND!) I am officially on the board of Governors too!

Phew!

Today will be filled with preparation and planning. The children start back on Tuesday. And my first Governors meeting is on Thursday evening.

And along with all this new stuff, I still need to be wife and mother, and write my blog, and finish my WIP!

I am not going to get myself het up about anything. Instead, I’ll handle things in my own Ritu-style – with a smile.

If I am not as vocal, or I miss posts from you, I apologise in advance. I shall try my best to keep up with everything, but I can’t promise… This is where that clone machine would come in handy! I have loved being free to read and write more the last month and a half. I know I won’t have that luxury now, but I won’t give it up either – don’t worry!

And I will eat cake.

It’s tradition to bring some cake in on your birthday, so I have a huge supply (not home baked this time, I was a tad busy!) ready to distribute to my colleagues.

So, I shall leave you to your business, and I’m pretty sure that by the end of the week, I’ll have something to report back to you about how my Teaching life is shaping up!

    i just found your blog and i like it a lot 🙂 i’m not thrilled about going “back to school” (back to work) even though it’s a short week i still feel like i could use another day of weekend to adjust to the thought of going back to it all! lol

    I have a fifth grader this year and I was pleasantly surprised with how excited he was to get back to school this year. I think it has partially to do with the fact that he’s now the top dog. I wish you luck with this school year. You seem to have a really good head on your shoulders.

    Being an educator wears one out. That’s why I don’t blog daily, I’d go crazy 😨

    Good luck Sis. I know that you will be able to handle everything that is thrown at you, and all with a smile too! I have another 2 week off (well kind of, I am working a few shifts and have some uni work) so am making the most of being able to nurture my blog a little before it all gets frantic again! 🙂

    Oh, Ritu, can you keep track of your schedule? I guess you could. I remember my days of climbing up the administration ladder when I was in the classroom. Going back to school, taking extra responsibilities to get experience… I remembered all my schedule in those days. You can do it. I know you can. Take me as a cheer leader!!! Happy birthday again!

    Good luck, Ritu! You are the most incredibly organised and dedicated person I have the pleasure of knowing. May your pencils always be sharp, your students greet you with a cheery smile, and your words flow when time is available. xxx
