Horry County Schools teachers head back to the classroom

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The first day of school may be August 20 in Horry County, but it’s already back to the classroom for teachers. Wednesday officially marks the first day back.

Weaving in and out of classrooms at Ocean Bay Middle School, it's clear gearing up for the school year started way before Wednesday.

Mr. Franzzini teaches 7th grade Language Arts, and he means business when it comes to back to school.

"I came in school about end of July, just getting my room organized, getting the desks situated, getting all the posters on the walls,” Franzzini said.

With the condition of the classroom, his class could start tomorrow, but for some, they might not yet be in the groove quite yet.  That's why teachers are officially back Wednesday, to make sure everything is done in time for your kids to hit the halls.

The next few days, preparations don't just happen in school. Teachers say they'll sit in on meetings and professional development with the school district, which for some, may just be a refresher course.

"A lot of people think teachers get the summers off, but we're planning lessons over the summer, we're doing professional development on our own and we're thinking about ways to improve our classroom and improve the environment for our students,” Franzzini said.

Teachers say, they aren't the only ones who should start preparing in advance, students should too.

"I would say that if your child hasn't been reading, doing anything academically over the summer, you should probably start thinking about it,” Franzzini said. “It’s better late than never."

The other two recommendations from Franzzini are to adjust sleep schedules, so your student isn't tired on the first day and hit the stores for school supplies, before many of the items and deals run out.

"For parents, most of all, just get your kids motivated for coming back to school, because it's going to be a great school year,” he said.
