Well today was my first day teaching, ever. And I have to say it didn’t go too bad. I started out with the highschoolers, and ended with kindergartners. Talk about two different worlds! But so far it has been fun, and once I figure out how to command the kids attention, I think I’ll be fine. I need to not worry about everyone liking me, and put my foot down on certain issues. I can really see how the little ones in particular will walk all over me if I don’t show them I’m not a push-over. So…tomorrow I have fifth graders and second graders. I hear the second graders can be a bit of challenge sometimes…so we’ll see. I DO think that having two rowdy boys, somehow helps qualify me for all of this, so I’m sure I’ll be okay.
I’m staying with my mom for the three days I am working, as she lives much closer to the school than I do. Lets just put it this way, the school is a 50 minute drive from her house and I live and hour and fifteen minutes away from her…so naturally… All that to say, she lives out in the boonies and does not have high speed internet, so I apologize if I am unable to make it to your blog this week, or comment. Hope you are all having fabulous weeks!
