Back to School

Wednesday will be my first day back at doing what I love best and it is called school-volunteer. The children go back tomorrow but I decided to give the teacher and students time to settle a little…..For the past 5 years I have been helping with first grade and then last year second grade and now I feel like I was promoted as I will be with a third grade class. Just curious if I will be smarter than a third grader? Most of them will be in the 8 -9 year range which is a great age as their reading skills are good and they have learned the times table and adding and subtracting. Now it will be time to learn multiplication and division. Will I be able to do this?

I am hoping to have another great year and looking forward to making 18-20 new friends…..In the quadrant we will be working, there will be some of my students from last year. It will be so nice to see them and how much they have grown in height and maturity……

Last year I received the “Outstanding Senior Volunteer of the Year” award……Maybe with good fortune I can add to this recognition…..
