Here I am again……….Brand new school year and lots of new teachers and children at my favorite place. It is mind-blowing that this is my ninth year at Marlowe Elementary feeling so comfortable with the staff. It is a typical family atmosphere especially when I walk around the grounds and my little ones from past years (all grown up it seems) are waving or mouthing a quiet hello as they change classes. Lucky for them if it is a teacher that knows me as silence is the norm (but if it is a new teacher) I just explain quickly and it is o.k. It is kind of nice to have a little clout and I sure don’t want any of them to be in trouble. Presently I have so many cute kindergarten kids in addition to first and fourth grade kids to keep me on my toes. Especially fourth grade Math-that is ancient for my mind. And so I checked Google and found some sites to bring me up to par and be able to answer a question without embarrassing my self.
My schedule thus far is Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-3 with a break for lunch. I have put my Friday yoga class on the back burner for now as I feel the children need me more. Just like my Tuesday mornings with Sophia who is now 16 and a junior in high school. It is spectacular and an honor being a mentor for her. She has become an excellent student and I am hoping the next years will culminate with her high school graduation and myself in the audience watching her receive her diploma..
