Year 2 of teaching preschool is in the bag and I don't mean to brag but I did pretty good. I avoided the sophomore slump nicely.
Fact: My parents cheered the loudest at the graduation ceremony. (I didn't even have to pay them)
Opinion: My kids were the greatest. (although the other kids were pretty awesome too.)
Fact: Without my trusty side kick Robin I wouldn't be able to be so awesome.
Opinion: I'm pretty good at this. (At least I hope I am.)
So let the summer begin. It's time to get my tan on. (PS Remember sunblock is your friend!)
Before I let my brain cook in the Southern sun I want to remind you of a few things.
1. Glitter is like the sand of crafting. It gets everywhere and no matter how hard you try there is always a little more.
2. Hugs from small children are great. Even better are hugs that come with sweet words.
3. You can build up a tolerance to snot. Not something I wanted to learn.
4. I've never met a child that didn't like goldfish crackers.
5. Coloring with crayons is very calming.
6. Pretty band-aids are the cause of more injuries than old benches.
7. If you bring me a cup of coffee I can be swayed to do, or forgive, just about anything. Bubbly water also works.
So have a fun summer kids and if you remember only one thing from my class make sure it's that being yourself and being weird is better than normal everyday of the week.
