I’ve been back to school for two weeks now. I can’t believe how tired I am by dinner time. I’ve been bringing home Take-Out food a lot, not only because I’m exhausted and hot, but I just got my new kitchen range last week and it wasn’t hooked up right away. (I’ll give you a kitchen remodel update soon.)
So today I figured I’d share a little bit of my school life with ya. In case you didn’t know, I work at a Catholic Elementary School (Preschool – Grade 8). There’s only about 215 students in the whole school. I teach 2nd grade and have 20 students this year. It has taken 2 weeks for my students to settle down. The heat didn’t help. We don’t have any air conditioning and we’re on the hot side of the building.
The other day, this cute little boy in my class asked if he could draw a picture on his free time. Well, he drew a picture of me, which got half the class wanting to do the same. This picture is from him.
Isn’t it adorable?
After he drew this picture he says, “There’s a note on your desk! Aren’t you going to open it?!”
He had the biggest smile on his face when I read it! It was the cutest thing! This boy belly-laughs at all of my jokes. It’s such a riot!
I had one of my students use my iphone to take a picture of me at my desk so I could show you what I was wearing that day.
Here are some pictures that the other kids drew of me. Check out the resemblance! LOL!
This stuff cracks me up!
Okay, enough with the drawings!
Here are a few pictures of my class. I obviously can’t show their faces.
I like all the light we get from one wall of windows, but it sure gets hot!
I have been teaching for 25 years. (Twenty-one years at this school.) I really wouldn’t want to teach anywhere else. We have our issues now and then, but it feels like one big family to me. We all help each other out and take good care of each other.
Hope you liked seeing where I work! If you feel like leaving a comment, I’d love to know what you do at work or at home!
