It's Monday. And it happens to be an especially Mondayish kind of Monday. As my assistant would say, these kids are wilder than 15 bucks. I love my job. I really do. But there are times where I am feeling less than patient with these children. These sweet, innocent, adorable children. Shocking, I know. However, I try to keep a calm exterior and only say what I'm REALLY thinking to myself. So here's a post I'll call WHAT I SAY/WHAT I THINK....
WHAT I SAY.... Remember, raise your hand when you need something.
WHAT I THINK..... If you say my name one more time, I'm changing it and not telling you what it is.
WHAT I SAY.... Eyes on me when I'm talking...
WHAT I THINK..... Oh my LANTA, can you focus for 15 consecutive seconds?!?!?!?
WHAT I SAY.... Cover your mouth when you cough.
WHAT I THINK.... AGGGGHHHHHHHH! I spend half my pay check on antibiotics, now quit getting your germs on me!!!
WHAT I SAY..... Let's get quiet.
WHAT I THINK..... Oh my LORD, do you ever shut up?!?!?!?
WHAT I SAY.... Please go sit down.
WHAT I THINK.... Poke me one more time and see what happens...
I am a teacher. I have taught in some capacity for the last twenty-plus years. I have lived in beautiful North Carolina for the past 12 years where I have taught kindergarten, among other things. This year, I am on a little adventure--I've taken my class to first grade with me, a grade I taught once ten years ago! Let the fun begin!
