Teaching is a work of heart.
“Is today Halloween?”
—Kindergartener
Days where I can come home from work still filled with joy and love for my students

Those are the good days.

The best days.


  • Me: What is something you like to do?
  • Student: I like to lay down under the sofa cushions until it hurts.


  • Him: How are you?
  • Me: Okay.
  • Him. Just okay? What is bothering you, my love?

I felt like an icky teacher today.

I let frustrations from not having the copy machine for the past week get to me. The past couple of days have been off due to plans being thrown off.

I shouldn’t have let it get to me.

On top of that, my kids have been extra chatty and wiggly so I lost my patience.

And raised my voice a couple times.

I HATE IT hatehatehatehateit.

One student even said, “They’re being crazy and I don’t like it.”

That was a flashback to last year.

I do not want to go back to last year.


Don't be a hopeless stranger, stay in school
  • Student 1: That's why I don't like school, I don't like doing work.
  • Student 2: Well, if you don't come to school and do work then you will be a hopeless stranger and not have food to eat.

I am the only kindergarten teacher at my school without an aide. It took me a bit to come to terms with it.

Today, the aide for the other teachers was out and they were commenting how it threw everything off. I commented, “Well you guys at least have an aide, I always have no one. “

One of the kinder teachers response, “Oh well.”

I had a few words to say but I kept it to myself.

That irked me.


I WANT TO GO SWEATERS AND BOOTS SHOPPING.
