Thirteen Things I plan to do the first day of school

1. arrive early, very early.
2. applaud my students as they walk onto campus (a school tradition).
3. giggle with a few of my fellow teachers.
4. look on in awe at how tall my seventh graders are now that they're eighth graders.
5. try and give each child a compliment.
6. make a few mistakes.
7. laugh at my mistakes.
8. call "traver" "colin" and "colin" "traver"
9. do a little dance.
10. forget to take attendance until it's almost too late.
11. accomplish about half of what I plan to do.
12. worry about the students who aren't at school that day.
13. collapse in exhaustion at the end.
