Today is "Meet the Teacher" day at school.
...most of my families already know me from Kindergarten.
I have 6 new students and families.
It will be so exciting to talk to them about 1st Grade expectations this afternoon.
They already know that I expect a lot of my kids.
They already know that I will push the kids to give their best effort in academics
as well as in citizenship.
They know I will send newsletters to let parents know what goes on in our classroom.
They already know that I will love their kids.
They know me and how much I love being at school.
THEY ALEADY KNOW!!!!!
I shouldn't be nervous.
...but I am.
First grade kids have a lot of curricular "stuff" that Kinder Kids do not.
I am eager to dive into the curriculum and begin teaching and learning.
This year will be a learning process for me as well as the kids.
I'm excited for them to see the classroom changes.
I am excited.
I am nervous.
It will be terrific.
It just might be the "Bomb-Diggity!"
I'm sure it will be delicious.
Prayers for a happy, healthy, encouraging new school year.
Today is the day.
Let's do this!!!
