Craziest 1st Day EVER!!

It came and it WENT!!! The most insane 1st day ever. 

So here is how my day went.

7am - Arrive at school finish miscellaneous task

8:30 - 9:20 - Crazy 1st day Bus Duty

9:20 - 4:00 - Create the schedule from HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excuse my language y'all but it was just THAT kind of day.  Usually scheduling my students is easy breezy.  I sit with my teachers we plug in the times and FIN.  ONE & DONE.  But this year the entire school schedule changed and that just made this process all kinds of crazy.  I have to say though I am so thankful and appreciative of the teachers at my school.  They really value the importance of Speech and Language Services and are so FLEXIBLE with when I can pull kiddos out for therapy.  Although it was a little outrageous at times they made it a quite a bit easier for me.  I also want to shout out my fellow SLP, she splits the building caseload with me and she was really so much help today. 

Anyway, on to better and brighter things.  My room is all unpacked and looking normal again.   Our building is K-5 with 6 self contained classrooms and preschool walk-in services so the other SLP and I split the caseload. I know alot of SLPs would prefer not to share a room but I actually LOVE it. I think its great to have someone else in the building to bounce ideas off of or help out with a tough case.
