I start back TOMORROW! (Monday)
I went in Thursday and Friday to prepare, and the kids come back tomorrow. We don't “pull” (take kids out of the classroom) the first week, but still lots to do to prepare in terms of setting up stuff, whether it's paperwork or supplies or learning about new kids etc. 🙂 I have to brush up on the ALERT program so I can help a classroom with it and refresh my memory on social thinking etc. I bought so many freaking toys this summer to be better prepared for this school year, and spent a lot of time finding crafts on pinterest I might do…..but I still struggle with anxiety about it all, no matter how prepared I am. 🙂 I just always want to be doing my best work!
Speaking of best work, I work for a great company based in California called School Steps, Inc. They are a small but growing business and they hire OTs, SLPs, PTs, and psychologists, for school systems, in various parts of CA. Their website is http://www.schoolstepsinc.com if you want more information. 🙂
