That's Ms. Metcalf to you


I got offered a job today.
I'm taking a job as a first grade teacher!
I feel entirely blessed about the whole situation.
The way things came together and all fell into place this week is truly amazing.
Lucky for me I'll be teaching with my roommate Kimberly---she teaches 3rd grade at the same school.
For the next few weeks I'll be in a furry preparing my classroom. GAH! I just got sweaty palms and a quicker pulse just thinking about it.
I taught first grade in student teaching...remember...here and here. I had the best cooperating teacher. I just wish I could have had more time with her!

"You have big eyes." "you're really pretty." "You have white teeth." "How tall are you?" "Are you married?" "Why aren't you married?" "Do you have a boyfriend?" "Guess what, Ms Metalf, my turtle got eaten by my cat." "Ms. Metcalf, My mom is really mad at my grandma."
