It was fun and of course there were all sorts of parallels that our principals described between bowling and teaching. You wouldn't guess it, but there's lots. :)
I have yet to get a full class list but I've got a little info, good and ... lets just say interesting.
- I have 5, five! teacher's children! It is very flattering because teachers get to request a teacher, so that means a lot. It also means that I better really be on my toes and mind all my p's and q's and all that. Not that I wouldn't do that normally, but there's just extra pressure.
- I had a mom call me today and she wanted to know if there's anything EXTRA I need that's not on my class list. Whoa! She also let me know that she would be happy to help out in any way. How cool is that!?
- I have a very special child in my room. I'm very nervous about this...I've never had a student like this and I hope I can not only handle him but make a difference.
