back to School Night

Last Tuesday we started school. Tonight is our Back to School Night. It is nice to have BTS night so close to the beginning of the school year because I can communicate classroom expectations with parents early on in the year. The not so nice thing about having BTS night this soon is that I haven't had a chance to do to many "cutesy" things with the kids to show off tonight. I have been too occupied with behavior management and individual assessments to get anything done for BTS. I think it will be ok but it just feels strange!

My BTS time tonight is from 7:05 - 7:20. I am curious as to how many of my 20 kids will be represented tonight. It varies so much from year to year. I am also a bit nervous about my presentation. I am not at all intimidated by the parents but I have never, ever done a whole class presentation to parents before. We have always had "drop in" BTS in the past. I ended up giving my BTS spiel about 15 times each night. This year, we have a new plan of attack by having all grade levels assigned to a 20 minute time frame to present. I do not know how I am supposed to share all of the information I need to share in this time frame. To make matters worse, I need to do it in 2 languages. Out of my 20 students, only 2 have English speaking only parents. I have to do my presentaion in English first though and then in Spanish. ¿Qué hago?

Tonight should be interesting...

i admire teachers, because it is often a thankless job, but it never stops real educators from doing what is best for their students.

I'm already dreading my back to school night. I have so many things I want to cover in such a short amount of time. And I always feel like I'm overwhelming the parents... too much info at once, you know? Oh well. Hope things went well at your B2S night!
