I Survived the First Day Teaching!

Well, today was the first official day of school at my new job. I think it went very well. The kids did great and had a blast.
The biggest thing we realized today was that we don't have enough planned. Projects we thought would take 45 minutes, only took 15. Hmmm... that leaves you with a lot of down time. Don't worry though, we had plenty of coloring sheets, notebooks, scissors and glue to make up for it.

Other than one kid trying to eat glue and cut her own hair and one set of brothers getting into a small fist fight, things went without incident.

Well, there was the one boy who had to be reminded to take his hand out of his pants at least 30 times throughout the day.
Would you expect anything less? Looking forward to another week of 15 different personalities.

Mrs. L (that's what I'm called - I am so the cool teacher!)

..."Mrs. L,"...I like that! Maybe I should have Sydney and Annalise call me that. Did you know that they raise their hands and then say..."Miss Jaime..." Apparantly I am not there Aunt or Mommy when school is in session.

I love hearing Sydney call you "Mrs.L"~!

Kelly said...

Mrs. L...I love that. Is that because they can't pronounce your name?
