Two days in ...

... just - so - tired.  How is anyone productive or creative when the process of starting a job is so emotionally draining?  I can hardly think about completing actual tasks because my mind is full of new names, faces and where to find who and when.  A school is a much bigger organisation than a public library.  Today my major achievement was getting a computer for myself, but then of course not actually being able to log in because the password didn't work.  Tomorrow's goal is to get a password that works.  Baby steps!

But it is going well and I am glad that this week school hasn't started for my own kids.  The next few weeks will be the full test run for us all as we sort out the final details of drop offs/pick ups, child minding, kid's music lessons etc, etc.  And I have to actually get my head around teaching on top of all of that (the old 'I think I can' mantra has returned!)

New is tiring. I hear you. Well done on the first two days!

I know the feeling. Setting up email and computer access can take a couple of weeks where I work...
Hope it all falls into place quickly for you, in a few weeks it will all feel normal again :)

School is more fun when the kids are there. Pupil free = pain. I hung out with our school librarian and covered books with her while (instead of) taking part in a day long seminar on resilience.
