Sounds fun! My wife and I both started new assignments today too! She is a first year teacher and has a grade 3 class. This is my second year in this district. My position is interesting to say the least. Between two schools I'll be teaching the core French program for grades K-8, science, social studies, math for a grade 5 class and a grade 6 class, Psy. Ed and god help them I'm the guidance councillor for one of the schools!
Our class pet...a corn too!
Good luck this year,
