Year 2, Day 1

So I woke up this morning not nervous but excited! Then I got to school. Apparently, there is a leak in the roof. Unluckily for me, the leak was above my room. I walked into a freaking pond in my room! Mind you this is 30 minutes before the kids were supposed to show. I freaked out to say the least and I almost killed myself on the slick floor. However, everything was righted and all was well again...just very wet. I lost another kid; now I am down to 20! Woo-Hoo! Hopefully, I will not get anymore (here's to hoping). I think I have a fairly good bunch. I hope it's not just because it was the first day. They seem very eager to please and can follow directions! I am exhausted but very excited for tomorrow!

New Class, New Year

And so it begins...a new class, a new year...hopefully, this year I will have more time to post and actually write things down :) I was very bad last year. We have lost a fifth grade teacher; she moved to fourth grade, but our classes are smaller this year so it shouldn't be too bad. I don't get to teach Social Studies this year, and I am sad about that. I also have to teach math, which will be interesting to say the least.

I have 21 students this year, and I think some might be a handful. I have four LD kids and one ED kid. I assuming because I rocked out so hard during my first year, my principal thinks I can handle them. Here's to hoping! I'll be posting pictures of my new class very soon! First day of school is t-minus 2 days!
