Christening Another Year

If you are a teacher, you probably have them. I have them every year. I have funny back to school dreams. Last night I had my first one. I think that is not too bad since I only have three more days off!

I dreamed that it was the first day of school and I hadn't been in to the school at all. I showed up late and my class was waiting outside. When I got the kids inside, I noticed that I hadn't set up the room. All of my furniture was still stacked for summer cleaning.

"Okay , kids," I said trying to play it off like I did it on purpose. "Everyone find your desk, and climb up and get it!"

Then, I noticed that I had some of my former students back mixed with some new students. I realized that they had given me a 3/4 combo class without telling me.

I went in to the school today and unstacked the desks...

Isn't is funny how these dreams tend to come around the same time every year. I wonder if I will ever have a "school dream free summer"

I had my first one last week, too. They come about this time every year for me! I have them more now than I did when I was younger. Of course, I work in NY, so I still have about 4 weeks of freedom! ; )

what these dreams reveal: you are a caring and concerned and conscientious teacher. You take your job seriously. WTG!

i had my first one acouple of nights ago... it didn't seem as severe, maybe it has something to do with experience. B/c when I awakened from it, I thought of all the things I could with that challenge.

Lit Teacher--4 weeks, I'm Jealous!
Miss Teacha--Thanks. I hope with experience my dreams will be a bit more productive too!
