I'm in South Carolina, teaching science to 9th grade students. They are generally very nice, the teachers and the administration have welcomed me warmly, and I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about the future.
As I get acclimated, I'll try to post a few pictures of the surroundings - it's really lovely. Most of my spare time over the next month or so is going to be dedicated to making sure I'm prepared to teach. I moved down with virtually no equipment or supplies, so I will be improvising a lot.
