If you’re a parent who brings your child to school each morning, you may throw on a pair of yoga pants (or whatever is clean) before heading out the door. But if your kid goes to school in Florida, you might soon have to dress up first. One Florida school board member is proposing a dress code for parents in order to set a good example for students.
Sometimes when we are studying a new letter, I ask the kids to bring in something that begins with that letter on Friday. Well, when we were learning the letter “K” one of my students brought in Dora the explorer and the Hulk. Before she began, my “active, always blurting out” student said, “That doesn’t start with K!”
So the student that was sharing goes, “I know, but this does.” And she makes them kiss. “See, kiss…kiss begins with K.”
One of my closest friends is getting married this summer.
I usually go on my favorite stores’ sites and window shop to see if they have cute things before going to the store and I found THE PERFECT dress online. called the nearby stores to see if they had it in my size and everywhere close by I called said they had already sold out of it. They said my best bet is to just buy it online and if I do not like it just return it.
Well, I hate buying dresses online because I don’t like buying something without trying it on especially dresses because it might not have looked nice on me.
Well anyway, I am so in love with this dress that I decided I am going to order it online.
I have a grandma that comes in to help once a week and she is great! She is always active and doing something, doesn’t wait for me to tell her what needs to be done. Well, she always gets me gifts…she got me something for my birthday and also something for Spring and they are all things I can use in my classroom that her and her grandson have personalized with my name and favorite color. So sweet!
I want to get her something as a thank you for everything she has done but I don’t know what to get…
How am I spending the Friday before Spring Break officially begins?
Sending resumes to principals for perspective openings.
My principal at my school basically told me she wants me back but currently they are two kids away from having another kindergarten class so if two kids enroll then I am set. She also said a teacher might leave so I would be the first one called. She is like I don’t want you to interview anywhere else but I cannot stop you from doing so.
Well, I am going to keep my options open and see what happens.
…being in an awkwardly long wooden canoe that has sprung a leak. At first, you carry on as best as you can by plugging the hole temporarily. Then the days go by, and your boat starts to fill with water. So your job becomes a constant emptying of the boat with a bucket so that you do not sink…
A - If I’m in love. B - Who the last person I talked to on the phone was. C - How long it’s been since I’ve kissed. D - If I have a preference for boys or girls. E - How many holes I have in my ears. F - Give me any options, like…
ooo I haven’t done one of these in a while…do it! Please?
5 of my kids were taken to the principal’s office today at lunch by the playground aide. They decided it would be fun to throw food over the gate at 5th grade students which then resulted in the 5th grade teacher coming out yelling at them and taking them in her class and yelling at them. While they were walking out, one of my kids called her a “monkeyhead.”
I feel like my kids are always the ones getting in trouble on the yard.
Only three parents didn’t show up…I had many parents from the preschool drop by as well which was great! The parents had great things to say about the classroom as well as about me which is always nice to hear. :)
It was so great to sit back and watch my students take ownership of the classroom and show their parents/grandparents everything we have done with such proud looks on their faces. I was one proud mama bear.
All the hours spent sprucing up the classroom was worth it.
I had a special connection with the 3rd graders I student taught a couple of years ago. Sometimes I wonder if they would be proud of the teacher I am now…whenever I am feeling down and don’t think I’m succeeding as a teacher, I just think of them and how much of an impact I made on their lives and that just gives me the boost I need.
