I've taken an unplanned blogging break.
More about that in a minute, because first----
(Hop over to Farley's and link up!)
This is the first sick day I've taken all year.
I knew the cough was turning into something yuck,
but kept hoping NyQuil would conquer all.
The kindergarten team sent updates throughout the day
and it took a village
to manage the 25 little darlings in my room.
Can I get props for doing it every day, by myself?!
Applause to our building subs for allowing me
to rest another day.
Which explains the venti mocha latte.
On any given day, my commute to work
is at least a 45-minute drive.
We should clock in by 8:45 and can leave at 4:17,
but dismissal is at 4:07; I can't figure out how
other teachers manage to clock out on time!
There have been many afternoons when I'm still
waiting for a parent to pick up a child at 4:45...
...'nuff said about that.
Over Spring Break, my family visited New York City!
Just before the break, the kindergartners were
learning to identify national symbols.
This task is on our report card, so I sat with each child,
checking for understanding with picture cards.
When I showed the Statue Of Liberty to one lil guy,
he replied, "That's Jesus!".
(Yes, Jesus gets mentioned in the urban public school!)
Hhmm. Reteaching was now on the agenda.
My souvenir for each child was this photo:
The unplanned blogging break was a surprise to me.
A few things have intersected
and left a void in my blogging habits.
Twitter. A demanding job. A hesitation to speak my mind.
A lack of allowed photographic evidence.
Did I say a demanding job?!
It's good to be back. I hope you think so, too!
