day 1

I'm a teacher again!!
Today was our first day & it went very well. I'm so excited to be back in the classroom.
I really don't know what else to say about it except that I'm pumped!

Oh - at Jim's suggestion, here's a picture of my first day teaching: 

Also, a picture from the awesome weekend at the cottage with Debbie & Kress:

And one more picture that made me laugh out loud, borrowed from my friend Dan:


  1. lovely back to school pic...but where's your backpack? so happy for you and your new job! xo.

  2. Congrats on making it through your first day! I notice you're wearing your "power" shirt--any comments? Also, love the contempo yet professional new do. And, finally, note that one of the Bannister clan's literal icons, Aunt Jan, admits that she (after several tries) has never gotten through Moby Dick either. Oh, one more note, Uncle Stu actually offered my bro Jon $50 to read the book at some point. Jon should check to see if the offer is still good...or maybe I will...

  3. Yes, first day of school... good work with the picture. How did it go?
