Somehow, someway, my little
devils darlin's wormed their way into my heart. I seriously am going to miss this group of kids so much. I'm pretty sure we have a future president, some NFL stars, a Nobel Prize winner, screenwriters, authors and a whole slew of other amazing jobs to come from these kids. Why I couldn't see this in October...November...December? Idk.
Anywayyyyyy, I'm pretty sure every teacher has always dreamed of being THE teacher that impacted a students' life. I really really think, there is a possibility I've done that this year...and that, my friends, is the absolute best feeling in the world. But, in order to get to this point, I've had to come to peace with this:
1. Sometimes, it's acceptable to go to recess and have time to get to know your kids. It really is. I promise. In fact, I think it saved my year. [[Plus now my boys know how amazing I am at football]]
2. Scores matter. But they are not the only thing. [duh.]
3. I can do anything for 187 days. ;)
Ok, #3 is sort of dramatic, but at the beginning of the year, I was seriously living day by day and just trying to make it through. Now, I'm sadly realizing how few days I have left with these kids. And it makes me want to cry. #teacherprobs #amiright?
On a happier note...I'm looking forward to this summer when I can make more TpT products ((especially some stuff I made for the school year that I loved!)) AND when I can start planning how to
conquer the world have a successful year next year as a 4th grade teacher. That's right peeps, I'm going back to 4th. But I'm taking my amazing partner teacher with me. :) Isn't she cute? Love her.
Talk to ya soon (probably...maybe?)
