Upperclassman now. Yep. Honestly, it was not that different. A lot of my teachers were familiar, so there was not too much unexpected. Rundown of the day:
First period: AP Chemistry with Mr. Mitchell. I thought dude was a pretty cool guy, but most people apparently don’t like him? I dunno. But I know my opinions will probably change over time; I remember I didn’t like Mrs. Bidwell a lot at the beginning (I did like her, just not a lot). I also didn’t like Mrs. Sales too much. But yeah, I’m sure he’ll be less strict, so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt; it is his first day of teaching and all.
Second period: APUSH with Mr. Rose. This class is going to be a lot of fun, but I’m worried about all the people in it and how much of a disruption they might cause. I also find myself missing Mr. Jones’ class. I actually prefer his lecture style to Mr. Rose’s in some cases. But I really cannot argue with a great teacher like Mr. Rose; we’ll have a great year, I’m sure.
Third period: French III with Mme. Redden. Mme. Redden subbed for Mme. May a bit last year, so we all kind of knew her. Things will be a little different, and I will definitely miss Mme. May, but I think French will be fun this year. However, the large class may be too much trouble than it’s worth. I am starting to miss our little 8-person F-II class last year. :(
Fourth period: AP English Literature. I thought the teacher was kind of a douchebag (I’m not naming him because that’s just rude). I dunno, from what I have heard, his class will not be that fun. It irritated me that he had no apparent lesson plan and wandered wildly from MREs to “The Hero’s Journey”. The works we’ll be studying sound pretty fun (except, I kind of hated Life of Pi, and it is apparently one of this teacher’s favorites), but I can imagine how much better they would have been with Mrs. Harvilchuck! I miss you, Mrs. H!! :(
Fifth period: IB World Geography with Mr. Sutton. I am sad because so few of my friends from last year’s class are in my class this year, but I think it will be a fun year. Oh! And Mr. Sutton already said I thought mass-murderers were nice people, so the year’s off to a great start!
Sixth period: AP Calculus BC with Mr. Bobbitt. Bobbitt makes the class seem so simple, and he throws all these statistics at us (only one person made a 2 last year in this class, 14/21 students made 5s, etc.). But you know it’s actually going to be hell. Though that’s what we signed up for, you know?
Seventh period: IB Biology II with Mrs. Bidwell. It’s going to be a riot! All the juniors taking IB are in there, meaning it is going to be crazy fun. But I also love biology so I’m glad to be back in class! Nerd alert: I am pretty excited about getting Campbell back, because that is like the perfect textbook. :D
And there it is, my first day. I omitted lunch and homeroom because I am a lazy loserface, but nothing too important happened in there anyway. Yep.
