Today was my first day actually having classes with students! Yesterday, everyone was in the building, but it was general orientation, so I didn't interact much with students. But today was a regular class day! We had the usual 55-minute periods. I teach 9th grade girls math during first period and 8th grade boys science during 2nd period. Overall, my classes went very smoothly! Just two hiccups during the day - first, I found out 5 minutes before morning prayer that one student did not have a math book and that I needed to copy the whole first chapter for her! I managed to get it copied and only be a tiny bit late to prayer! Second, I accidentally called myself by my maiden name once! But I corrected it so quickly that I don't think the guys noticed.
Today's dress is a black shirt dress from Ann Taylor. It's a size bigger than I normally wear, but the belt keeps it looking fitted. Although it's dry clean only, it redeems itself by having very large pockets! It was a Twice find for $25.
Speaking of Twice, I was totally bummed to learn yesterday that they are no longer doing free returns! Returns are now $5 unless you are willing to get your refund in store credit. Booo :(
