I ran into the Mom of child I taught after school today. Her child is now in Grade Four. With her permission, I share this story. She made a point of telling me how quickly our year together passed by. She said it was fun for her to be a part of the adventure via the blog.
It's hard to articulate how much I love what I do for a living. I know I'm lucky, not everyone loves their job. I'm halfway through my career and I have no idea where the time went. How can new teachers be 25 when I still feel like that's *my* age? ;)
For me, it's always Grade Three...even in July and August when I'm stalking the Targets and Walmarts in Erie, PA for cheap markers. For my students and their families, it's only about 190 days. It really does fly by. I mean, doesn't it seem like yesterday was the first day of school? We're now 30 days in. Thirty days! Thanksgiving has come and gone and in a few months, I'll be blogging about how my class runs itself and my students are ready for Grade Four.
I want to take this opportunity to invite you along for the ride. Seriously, grab a coffee, hop in and giddy up!
Please post your comments on the blog. Please visit often. I hope this place makes you smile. I hope you feel like you are part of our room and our day. I hope you feel like you are a member of our class family. I know you can't come to school with us everyday, but I hope this blog makes you feel like you do. I know some of us haven't met yet, but I hope you feel like you know me. I hope you feel good about how your child spends their day.
I hope everyone makes the most of this year together. I really do.
It just goes so fast.
