Today's the first day of the new contract period, which is the official beginning of the school year for instructors. Staff and administrative folks have been around all summer working, of course (and paid for it). Most students aren't here yet, but the band is already busy practicing, and so are some athletes.
I dropped my international students off at their dorm this morning, and now I'm at the office, feeling sort of overwhelmed by how much there is to do, and hardly knowinig where to start.
I think I'll start by cleaning up a bit, and getting some stuff in order for the Big Cheese job. And then I'll go home and read/prep some more.
Happy New School Year, all!
