Hello all! ….Thank you SO much for all of your feedback and help on menu items I should make for the mommy to be! You are all so helpful & I truly appreciate it! I would be lost without you and be searching for recipes. She will be unbelievable grateful for all of the items I prepare. Sounds like soup & casseroles are on the menu for sure!
I’m also making Chocolate Zucchini muffins for her tonight…. I’lll be sharing this recipe because it flat out ROCKS!!!
On to my day at work…..
“I say it once…. got it? That’s all. Only once! Got it? ….ONE time!”
The first few weeks of school are quite taxing because I swear students think I talk because it is fun for me. They have been away from this kind of conformity all summer and just don’t have their “listening ears” on. I know this.
Today I swear I gave a set of directions at least 7 times, one right after the other… This is the stuff dreams are made of people…. It makes me wonder what I was like as a student. Or maybe I don’t want to know…. eeek!
….When I get pooped out, I remember teaching over 20 kindergarteners how to: line up, raise their hands, tie their shoes, blow their noses, use the restroom, and learn their letters/letter sounds ect…. THAT my friends is *TIRING*! Seriously, every day for a month, I came home feeling like I had been hit by a bus. –And that was with coffee.
I’ve now progressed to 3rd grade. They are more inattentive because they have other/more important things on their minds: the cute boy/girl across the room, football practice, why their teacher is so loud, what is lunch going to be like, who will be their partner in pe, if pigs will every fly, how many lightbulbs are in the room. We’re talking BIG things!
I have loved each grade I have taught but each grade/class is a new bag of tricks! This particular class is going to make me dance on the ceiling to keep their attention, I can tell already.
I honestly love my job (even when it’s hard) and the kids I work with every day. Nothing beats hearing “Mrs. H you are the best teacher ever… and probably the most hyper teacher ever. You make me tired!” –Good, I’ve done my job!
Question: What did you think about as a student? Lunch? Boys? Friends? School work? -OR- What kind of student were you?
To be completely honest, I think I was the teacher’s pet that concentrated on the curriculum and making my teacher impressed at how attentive I was… not kidding. Sad but true. That was little Miss Julie Marie all the way through her schooling experience.
