Perfect Peace got a makeover! I had been working on several different ideas for weeks, then all of a sudden this one just happened. I'm pretty happy with it, what do you think?
It's been a long day.
Can I tell you about it?
First of all, I had to wake up at the ungodly hour of 6am. That shouldn't be legal. Saddest thing is, when I'm a real teacher, I'll have to do it (or earlier) every day. Wonderful. Anyway. I headed over to the Elementary School that I'm doing my [40 hours of] clinicals at.
I love my crazy sweet class of 18 second graders. Every time I see them they remind me of how much I love teaching and how I know it's what I'm meant to do. that makes getting up at 6 a little better.
I want to tell you a few stories:
I was helping Caroline with her math work. She had to transfer her answers to a scantron, and I was helping her out by bubbling in the answers as she read them to me. When I finished, she looked at the scantron and said, "Wow! You bubble good!" Well thank you. Years of practice, grasshopper.
Later in the day I noticed a few kids passing a note back and forth. I wasn't going to be that teacher who calls kids out for writing notes, especially since it wasn't like they were supposed to be paying attention or anything. And because I figured it was the boys writing notes to the girls telling them they were pretty or something. What was I thinking? A few minutes later I passed one of the boys' desks and see the note. On the note I see a...a...a BAD WORD! I was so ashamed of my sweet little second grader. I didn't know what to do.
So I tattled.
I told the teacher, and they got in trouble.
I'm a terrible person.
Please don't allow your 8 year old to curse.
Okay rant over.
