My poor sad little blog . . . It seems that it has gotten tossed aside while life has just rolled on by. I expected as much. Such is the life of a teacher, about the time that October rolls around. The reality of the school year has hit, and the pressure is on!
I am beginning to learn who the little people in my classroom really are. There are 24 amazing young people who share my space every day - 10, 11 and almost 11 year olds. They have all of this shining halo of hope and future around them. Mostly, I just love basking in their light.
I love the joy of learning that they bring to my day - the sense of wonder they have in everything about them. It seems as though the moments we share are just flying by. I will cherish every single one, because I know they will end all too soon.
I love teaching. And I love teaching 5th Grade. It's a great place to be.
