Physics, not math

I had no news for a long time and now there is plenty of news. I finished my masters at the end of July, and more importantly, a few days before I graduated I landed a job for September. It's teaching high school physics, not middle school math as I had ideally hoped for, but I'll be licensed for it and I'm getting excited about it. There are a ton of cool physics projects and demos and experiments. I've been flipping through the textbook and buying other neat books and trying not to freak out.

Yesterday I went to get a tour of the school building, ask questions, and see my classroom. Very exciting, although still totally overwhelming.

Will write more later as I start to get serious about planning the year. School starts after Labor Day but I really only have two and a half more weeks of time off until I start training and PD.
