Today I had my first day of new teacher induction for the Milan school district. There are a lot of new teachers this year. This makes me feel good because I won't be the only new teacher in the district. My friend from school is the new high school art teacher, so that makes me especially happy! I spent sometime today decorating my classroom. One of my favorite things I got for my classroom this year is a string of batik flags that show children from different countries all happy together around a picture of the Earth. A lot of the teachers stopped in to introduce themselves to me and to say hi. I feel very good about my new job. I can't wait for school to start!
