The beginning of this year has not been the best ever.
I have a lot of kids who have experienced a lot of trauma.
I’m sure that I will have chair-thrower stories at some point, but right now it’s just sad. So many of my sweethearts are living in the shelter and come in so sad every day.
One little girl refuses to enter the classroom every morning and I need to just give her love and space until she’s ready. I never know what my kids see before 8:25 each morning, but I know that school is a safe space. And by 9:30am, everyone has their guard down and laughter/misbehavior is in full-force. 🙂
Somehow, I’ve found the energy to be a super fun teacher; mostly because of my amazing next door neighbor-teacher-soulmate. She encourages me to do fun things every day, so I do those things.
😂😂😂😂😂Ho. Lee. Crap. I just volunteered in my son’s kindergarten class for an hour. ONE. HOUR. And yeah, what you think is in this glass — you’re right. If you know any kindergarten teachers, please thank them & give them presents or money. I don’t know why they’d willingly subject themselves to what I just witnessed for 7 hours a day, but I’m so grateful they do.
