Oh Lynn... i'm so glad there are other teachers here that get the stress/teaching/food connection. I came home and downed half a dark chocolate bar. So much for watching my weight. On Friday, I have a 3:30 appt for a CT scan, and am supposed to be fasting all day (nothing to eat OR DRINK), except for the nasty thick gloppy barium sulfate stuff that will allow the tech to see what's going on. It is also the day I am supposed to WALK my class (along with 17 other classes) to the children's free RODEO. It's supposed to be hot.... there will be little opportunity to use the bathroom (other than portable toilet-- competing with 108 kindergartners plus millions of other school aged kids), and I only THIS EVENING find out that the stuff may make me sick to my stomach and cause diarrhea.
I am rescheduling, for sure! I do not need this added drama! right? 2237 days ago
I LOVE "No Child Left INSIDE"!!! That's so clever, and such a great academic day! I will have to share that idea at our school.
Wedding is plugging along. The only "glitch" is that my daughters think my wedding dress is dowdy and plain, and insist I buy another one. The 20 y/o is taking me to Chico next weekend to look. So funny. 2255 days ago
Good morning! My school is a public one, the smallest school in the board. I have four grades- Primary(5 students),one (2 students), two(2 Students), and three(3 students). 12 students all together. There are only 33 students in the entire school (P-6). It is unique, my first year in this school, I've always had regular classes like yours- 20-30 kids in them. This group is like a family, they look after each other, but they also bicker like siblings! I actually have two sets of siblings in the class. I try to walk the playground on recess duty, too. I have recess duty every day every second week. I have lived here all my life, but I did visit California (Los Angeles) 19 years ago. It was beautiful! The Pacific is sure different from the Atlantic! You have much nicer weather! 2345 days ago
