I completed my first year of teaching.
I am amazed everyday that I have this job and that I love my job.
Year 2 is near.
I got my class roster full of 22 cute names. (if you need name ideas for your kids I got em)
Who are the little kids behind those names?
I'm excited to meet them.
Thinking back to year 1, I learned:
-children need attention
-get on the floor and play with them
-laugh a lot
-call them by name
-welcome them at the door to class
-dismiss them at the door
-teach using visuals, tools, and lots of practice
-practice team work
-read every day
-despite all the hard work to make school fun, they will still love lunch and recess more
