A new school year starts early for teachers in the Rockwood School District. All teachers reported for work on Aug. 8. 

At Blevins Elementary, third grade teacher Sarah Klinkhardt set up her classroom for her third year of teaching. 

"I think a new school year is a fresh start," said Klinkhardt. "Our ice cream social is coming up where I get to meet my new third grade students, and tomorrow we work with our team to get ready.  Getting your classroom together is very exciting." 

At Marquette High, art teacher Jamie Wildt is in her 10th year of teaching. 

"It gets more exciting each year," said Wildt. "Getting a classroom together takes some time, but you're excited to see the kids coming back into the building. We're getting everything ready for students to motivate them and help them enjoy their classroom experience," she said. 

At Rockwood South Middle, earth sciences teacher Charles Ruble is beginning his 33rd year as a teacher in the building. 

"I'm ready for it," said Ruble. "You start lesson plans and get ready for the first day. I have a bit of work to be done in the classroom before next week but we'll be ready." 

After three decades, does he still get excited? 

"I do," said Ruble. "I need to make certain everything is in place and ready to go for our students." 

Rockwood students begin the 2018-19 school year Aug. 14.
