things I really don't know about middle school

Well, pretty much everything.  I really have no idea what to expect.  I am learning a few things everyday.  Like today I found out I have lunch at 10:05 - sounds like fun.  And, the kids are allowed in the room at 7:23 - ouch.  5 a.m. wake up call again!
Now, this next picture would be very clear to my former students who one day found my stash of diet dr. pepper soda cans under our sink!  They were like - geez Mrs. Lewis - don't you ever recycle?  Well, I am pretty lazy and just hope the recycle elf will come by and get them for me.  In fact, it was one of the messes I MAY have left behind in my old room, and no, I don't feel bad about it at all.
Now, the former teacher left her file cabinets pretty organized.  All I had to do was switch out the names, easier said than done.  I got through 2 periods today and will try to get the next 3 done tomorrow.
With that being said, I am not complaining, not one bit.  I have caught quite the break this year, so no complaining here...just adjusting.  On another note, when making my class lists today my heart hurt a tad when having to erase my kid's names from last year to put in the new ones.  I miss those guys already.  It is still weird for me to think that someone else will be teaching them this year in our room.  Boo for seniority, I am not a fan.  


  1. You are making some awesome progress! And 7:23? man, that's soo early!!!

  2. Thanks but yeah I'm a tad scared of the start time. Earliest I've had and my furthest commute! Oh and all the names! I need to start memorizing names like yesterday!
