Well, I made it through the first student day!
Overall, it wasn’t too bad. I always think the first day flies by and the kids are usually (relatively) quiet, because who wants to get in trouble on the first day?
I headed out bright and early this morning:
You can’t tell from the photo, but the dress is actually a dark blue leopard print! I bought it at my local LOFT outlet last week, and paired it with a long black necklace (“borrowed” a long time ago from my mom!) and Nine West wedges!
Since I’m nosy and know that I am always curious about people’s day-to-day lives, I thought I’d share my current “routine” now that things are back to “normal.”
4:45AM – Wake up
Yes, that is brutally early! Last year, I woke up around 5/5:15AM, but I’m trying to give myself more time in the morning to eat my breakfast at home, do a little blog business, etc. I won’t be surprised if the 4:45AM wake-up call doesn’t last though.
5:50AM – Eat breakfast
After I shower, do my hair/makeup, and get dressed, I venture downstairs to eat my breakfast (overnight oats today!) and drink my coffee. I’ll do a few blog-related things, then pack my lunch.
6:25AM – Finish getting ready
Time to head back upstairs, finish my hair (anyone who knows me knows I love my hairspray!!!), and put my jewelry on.
6:40AM – Leave for work
My drive to work is literally about 6 minutes; can’t beat that!
6:50AM – 7:25AM – Down time before the kids arrive
I like to make sure I’m at school early because I hate being rushed and I’m not a fan of having a bunch of people in my face early in the morning. This gives me a chance to wake up a bit!
7:30AM – 10:50AM – Morning classes
Last year I had my prep period first thing in the morning, which was both a blessing and a curse! This year, it’s not until the end of the day and I teach straight through my morning.
For those of you who don’t know, I teach high school English and advise yearbook. In the morning, I teach two sections of 11th grade and two sections of yearbook.
10:50AM – 11:30AM – Lunch
Lunch time! My favorite part of the day!
11:30AM – 2:30PM – Afternoon classes + prep period
I teach two sections of tenth grade in the afternoon and end the day with my prep!
I was planning on documenting my evening as well, but realized this is already kind of long and drawn out, so I’ll stop at the end of my work day! Also, I’m not sure anyone really cares!
When (what hours) is your typical work day?
