1- Organize that crazy classroom of mine. So I am very happy with the work I accomplished over break! I spent so. much. money on storage and stuff, but it's tax-deductible and if I end up moving schools, I can take it all with me.
2- Don't go in earlier than 7:15am and leave by 4:30pm. So far, I've kept to this one!
3- Dress up more. It makes me look older and more like a teacher. Here is a picture of my outfit today (courtesy of a student).
I have a funny story from our first day back! We reviewed and revisited our routines and procedures all day. One of my darlings brought his hat into the room and wore it. I told him to put it in his backpack. A while later, he had it on his head again. I said, "I told you to put that in your backpack!"
He responded, "It just magically appeared on my desk!"
I love teaching. It's so funny!
