Not bad for a fat girl

Two Down, One Hundred Seventy-Eight to Go!


School_Clip_Art_1163School days, that is. Not that I’m counting.

Two busy, fun, kid-filled, hot, humid days. Two days of teaching rules and routines, expectations and procedures. Two days of learning new names and figuring out new personalities. Two days of writing in new notebooks and opening new text books. Two days of school supplies and notes home and practicing quiet lines.

These past two days have been exhausting, but they have also been exhilarating. I LOVE this new class. They are smart and funny and kind and they are ready for all the challenges that fourth grade will provide.

Each year I forget just how much mental energy (not to mention physical stamina) it takes to teach. I’m tired, but I’m happy. These kids are mine, and already I know we’re going to have a fantastic year. What a lucky teacher I am.

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. I loved the first day of a new school year (all my classmates were shocked and called me a nut) I couldn’t wait to see the new books and I even slept with my brandnew pencils next to my bed :o) Have a great year with super nice kids. btw: we had a teacher who couldn’t remember the names, so he always called us by the clothes we wore … “green shirt- stop talking, red shirt with stripes-sit down” :o)
