Teachers work long hours preparing for First Day of School

Emily Manley had planned to make a relaxing shopping trip to Boise this past weekend.

That was before she received a phone call that jolted her world.

The call came last Wednesday and was from a La Grande School District official offering her a newly added first-grade teaching position at Greenwood Elementary School. Manley did not hesitate when asked if she would take it.

“Absolutely,” she said. 

Manley, 23, took the position less than a week before classes started today in the La Grande School District. She worked furiously over the weekend to get her classroom ready for the first day of school. Greenwood became her second home this weekend as she prepared her classroom for the start of school. 

“I was there all day Saturday and I’ve been there all today and I’m going back after dinner,” Manley said late Sunday afternoon.
