hi. my name is hayley. i survived the first day of school. without dr pepper!
sadly, i will say that this class is going to be much more difficult than last year. but not as bad as the year before that.
i have a little girl in my class that is going to struggle with authority all of her life. she wants to control everyone around her & gets frustrated when that gets her behind. i have a little boy who is just plain ornery. i have another little boy who talked at me constantly... his desk will promptly be moved.
i do have a bunch of darling, smart little kids too though. [luckily for the stinkers, they're cute, too.] it won't be as easy a year as i had last year. but, if i were to go back & look at my first day impressions last year, i'm sure i didn't think they were all so dandy. they needed my training. i am prepared to train.
why is it always so shocking & overwhelming to me that they come EVERY year like this? they talk more. they need to show me everything. they can't sit in their chairs the right way. every year, i'm dumbfounded. yet every year it just takes me a while & then i'm over it. where's my while?
hey, i might just have good stories to blog about like i did a few years ago. that's how i'll see the bright side here - good blogging opportunities.
p.s. only one little girl cried today, but i hear she cries often & it wasn't my fault... well, she wasn't crying as a direct result of something i said to her. it was someone else bothering her.
