Back to School

Returning to the classroom after three weeks away is a strange feeling.  Especially when, during the third week, everyone else was there, and you were the only one gone.  I'm constructing a to do list for the week right now involving our inquiry, the classroom environment, and planning, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.  But in 30 minutes, when the children come through the door, I think things will fall back into place.

Do you ever feel in a rut?  Even the very best teachers must.  What is challenging you this week?
