I got a better look at my new "stuff" today. I took a detailed inventory of everything I could see, which included about 30 reference books and 20 activity sets. I also saw the folders of the kids on my caseload. I didn't have time to read them, but I counted them. There were 45, which is a pretty good caseload, especially since I will be dealing with three different schools as well as walk-in preschoolers. The janitor, who is really nice, told me that I will have Internet access in my portable--thank goodness!
No more work this week. I'll be doing the catch-up "Mama" and personal things the rest of the week to get ready for everyone's new school year.
As I start hearing more about what I will need to be doing, I am starting to worry a little. I have no ideas on how to decorate my room. I am hoping that I will learn the information on doing the meetings and paperwork at my training next week, but I already have to schedule a meeting for the week after! I am worried about how I am supposed to schedule the kids since I have never really done that before. I have no idea what the hours for the school district are. I need to work on making forms and looking at IEPs... I feel too tired to worry about it all tonight.
