19 August 2021: First Day of School

Today was the first day of school. I had wanted to do an update about my day, which is why I didn't write and post a blog post this morning, but it's nearly 4pm and my brain is fried.


For those that are new here, I'm working in an elementary autism program, with kids from kindergarten to second grade (which is age 5 to about 7-8). We schedule our day into increments of work sessions, where we work through individualized goals for each kid. I've missed the kids and my coworkers, having a consistent schedule enforced by someone other than myself, and the sense of productivity. I did not miss waking up early or coming home at the end of the day exhausted. It is what it is. I love working in the autism program, more than I ever expected to, and I'm going into my fifth year. I don't know how long I intend to stay, but right now, I feel like I'm exactly where I need to be.
