The teacher dream.
It has happened 4 times in the past 9 days.
Dream 1: It is the first day of school. Somehow I totally forgot that today was the day. I showed up with no shoes and ran in to the class when students were already in my classroom. I frantically looked for my Will Smith clip from "Pursuit of Happyness" and cannot find it to save my life. Utter panic. I wake up.
Dream 2: It is the first day of school. Again, I have managed to forget that today was the first day of school. I run into the classroom and try to find the Will Smith clip again. I still cannot find it. I also notice that there is nothing on my walls. I wake up.
===Dream 2 prompted me to go to my classroom and make sure all my laminating and poster requests were complete. They were. I thought this would end my teacher dreams. ++
Dream 3: It is the first day of school. There was some type of emergency on the campus the night before. For some reason I was there and witnessed the yellow crime scene tape, along with the closing of most of our school building. During the night emergency I somehow injured my ankle (the one with screws and a plate). After being at the school all night, I frantically hop to my classroom. Crutches were not available to me. When I finally hopped all the way to my room I found a sign that read, "Closed for Maintenance" on the door. I had to start the first day of school in the hallway. Again, I was frantically trying to find the Will Smith clip. No luck.
Dream 4: It is the first day of school. I am wearing biker shorts. My classroom is totally gone. As in does not exist. There is nothing but dirt where it used to be. I am still wondering about the Will Smith clip. I wake up.
And for the record, this is the Will Smith clip that I still have not found in my teacher dream world. I showed this to my students on the first day of school last year. It worked well.
I wonder what will happen tonight in teacher dream land.
