More Work

This is the week where the majority of my staff goes back to college. I get to really work on my management skills in keeping the ratios as well as making sure the kids have everything they need to be happy and safe. I am in need of another morning person, just to be within the teacher to student ratio.
So far I have been put on committees I don't really want to be a part of, but don't have a choice. I also will be going through the accreditation process these next couple of years, so that too will keep me busy.

Week One, Done.

The first week of school is over. Well, the first 2 days. I wish we could work into going a full week, like next week we only have 3 days, the week after 4, then up to 5. It's ok. I know next week will be tough with being there all day all week, but my beautiful bride finally comes in from Hawaii, with our animals on Monday, so it is a week I am definitely looking forward to.
To celebrate my completed week, Chad and I went to Charlston's for dinner last night. It is a fairly expensive restaurant here in Omaha. We ordered a creamed spinach artichoke dip to start, and it may have been the best spinach dip I have ever had, may have even been the best thing I ate last night. Chad then ordered the filet and I had prime rib, with fries (the girls at work said the fries are awesome, so I tried them) instead of the mashed. Each of our dinners came with salad and a croissant were both pretty full by the time the actual meal came out, but somehow managed to eat everything off each of our plates.  Dinners were $23 each, not too bad, but I guess compared to some other places in Omaha, that is a bit high.  Chad had a gift card for $75 that he had won at a work party, so dinner was free.  Can't beat free.

A couple of shots to make you drool...

First day

I am currently sitting in the Starbucks on 87th and Pacific. Just finished my first morning with students. I had three sets of parents show up without registering before hand. Um, no. I gave them applications and sent them home. I need to get the following the rules from day one, before I am so nice that they try and walk all over me.
I am very happy with my staff I have so far. They are all on time, and great with planning and working with the children. We are off to a great start, and I look forward to an awesome year.

One week down

Yesterday I finished my first official week of work. Took many hours cleaning out the old directors desk, the closet, and all of the other stuff she left behind. I have been working on all my sign in sheets, student files, staff files and just getting ready for the kids to show up on Thursday.
Meeting my staff on Monday morning, conference that afternoon, orientation all day Tuesday and shopping on Wednesday.
Pictures of the classroom to be posted really soon.
