So it’s a done deal. I took the job.
Thanks to all of you who helped and supported and weighed in on this major decision. I’m now fully preparing for the upcoming school year teaching Chemistry (which I taught college chem labs for the last five years so I’m not feeling as nervous about that) and Physics (eek, not my normal subject area and it’s been years since I’ve dealt with it, so I’m studying up extra hard). The first half of the year it’s Chem and Physics every day and the Regents in January. Then the next half of the year it’s just Chemistry. The same one I will have taught in the first semester. So that at least should be easier. It’s just the first half of the year that will be overwhelming. But I’m up for it-I’m going to get as much planned ahead as I can.
Any teachers out there? Any science teachers? Anyone want to help out? 😉
How do you all prepare for a new job, where you don’t know anybody???
