Back to School

I've survived the first week of school. It went incredibly fast and felt long at the same time. My room is newly waxed and all rearranged. The crayons, markers, glue bottles, etc. are all new and plentiful.It is always interesting to meet the new students who have moved in over the summer, and see how much all the others have changed. It also takes some time to readjust to getting up early every day, making it through 8 hrs. of non-stop action, and training my bladder to only go to the bathroom at certain times. Those little 5 year old kindergarteners can really drain your energy, but they are also so sweet and creative (see great drawing by one of my students above). Alright - on to next week!

  1. I'm a teacher too and love the smell and look of the ready classroom. I always said if I won the lottery, I would tsill teach. I'd just order a secretary, cleaner, and organier to do all the stuff I hate doing!

    I teach elementary. A coworker and I are starting a Paper Arts Club. I've also joined the KidsAtc Swa group for teachers.

    E me if you'd like to set up a swap or want more info.
