Ok- Let me begin this post by saying....
a) I love my job.
b) never fails every year I ask myself "why do I teach kindergarten??" the first month or so of school.
c) my large glass of wine is really working wonders on my post first day therapy!

My class roster had 27 on it. 19 showed. It was WONDERFUL. I will be getting 4 newbies tomorrow however. hahaha. Everyone else had more kids show, most classes were running 23/24... so I thought why not--- I am gonna get the kids sooner or later?! Why not just take em sooner.

My kiddies were, interesting? I always ask people to ask me again in 2 weeks. You know, once the deer in the headlights look is off their face! =) Overall SUPER sweet. I even had a girl talk to me about church, Jesus, God and praying!! (I work with a predominantly Indian population, so it's rare that a child approaches me and asks me if I pray or go to church!)

Anyway- I am revamping my week in reading... to better meet their needs and am totally gonna share some things on Friday! Just trying to survive until then! =)


  1. Hi Lauren! I feel the same way...I want people to ask me about my babies in two weeks, ha! Love them! I'm your newest follower:)

  2. haha, right!!! I just keep telling myself-- it always gets better. And even today was a tiny bit better! =)

  3. Hi Lauren,
    I'm so glad that I found your blog today through a comment that you left. I've really enjoyed going back to read some of your previous posts. . . your apphappy linky post was great and I just added your autobiography to my wish list on TPT. I'm sure you will do great with your new group of students no matter how many there are. Looking forward to reading some more from you.
