Well it has been a busy 3 weeks! I can't believe 3 weeks of school is complete! This past week we had our open house! It went well. From a couple parents that came, they told me I was their child's favorite teacher and that they love coming to my class! That made my night!! Well then comes Friday morning...the day after open house...I had NO voice!! I not the world's biggest talker, and having to talk for about 13 hours straight did me in!!! I've never lost my voice like that!! NEVER!! I was very worried how I would get through the day without a voice! Kinda of a necessity for teachers!! Well each period I had another teacher to come in and give the spelling test! That was awesome! Did I mention how SWEET, NICE, GENEROUS, KIND, LOVING group of teachers I get to work with on a daily basis!?! Well if not they are AMAZING!! My classes were GREAT! They were so understanding of my lack of voice! They got their work finished, did great on their re take test, and were so quiet!! It was so cute, they would whisper me answers for their warm ups! It was sweet!
Progress reports go out on Tuesday...I think my email and voicemail will be flooded! Work has been keeping me very busy!! I feel a little disconnected right now with the outside world! I'm trying to catch up and get in a routine of some sorts! My classes are tying me up at nights and on Saturdays...they are the BIGGEST waste of time! I really wish they weren't such a waste and that I would get something more out of them! They are too expensive to be such a waste! But oh well...they are going to get me officially certified!!
I can't get over how fast time has gone by!! My 2 nieces and 1 nephew are all in school- Kindergarten and pre-school! A lot of "NEW" happening in our family in 2010!! Little William will be a year old next month!! WOW!! We will have lived in our 2 years next month--oh homeownerhsip!! January Jared and I will celebrate 3 years!! WOW! Time flies!!
