1st day of school

As a complete surprise to me today was wonderful. After last year I was ready to throw in the towel and become a Wal-Mart greeter. Yes, it was that bad.

The kids were not only sweet and compliant, they got along....and asked me if they could read in our semi down time! I have never had a kid ask me to let them read. My 1st year they would let me read to them, but last year they wouldn't even let me read the Social Studies book. It was horrid.

Funny enough my hands down best day teaching (going on 3 years) was my most energy consuming, and I didn't even know it until I came home and passed straight out. All in all though it was a great day, and I realized in the middle of Spelling that I was delighted to be back to teaching ELA(english language arts).

Hopefully I will get back in the blog swing soon.
