Over the weekend, I discussed at length with my teacher friends the pros and cons of which classes I might want to teach, as well as specific curriculum and strategies I could use to teach the students. I'm sure these talks contributed to my nighttime imaginings.
But the thing is, I'm excited about my new job and it's a good idea for me to be thinking about it. It's going to be a fair amount of work and any I can get done before school starts is all to the good.
Now I just have to come up with a schedule that allows for advance planning, some fun, maintaining time for writing, while at the same time keeping my sanity intact.
