a teachers worth?

honestly what is a teacher worth?
what is you child's future worth?
are these things of such a little value that people think cutting the Education budget is okay?!!?
well i know where a stand and this is putting as
ide the fact that this is my lively hood!

our children are worth it and it is our responsibility to give them the best possible education.

if we have the money use it don't stick it in a sock under the bed!

mine is better then yours

alright this ward change has been difficult to say the least. i'm sure most of it is my own stubborn pride. but today made me realize it's not just me.

honestly i felt like i was watching little kids on a playground today!

"Our school is better then yours" "ohh i would never go to school there"

the excuse for such a statement- high school rivalry.

well hello people, this is NOT high school!!

this is real life!!! GROW UP!

a few weeks ago someone suggested to us that we go and watch another kindergarten teacher who has been teaching our program for several years. we were excited it's always fun to watch other teachers borrow their techniques in discipline, transitions and songs. the only downer was that the principal was coming with us. so i wouldn't be able to run up and get the best Bavarian cream filled doughnut on the planet.
the road trip was yesterday these are the top ten things i learned

  1. kindergartners are the same every where
  2. My expectations for kindergartners are reasonable
  3. My expectations for parents need to be higher
  4. the phrase "take charge of your body"
  5. the names of 3 "naughty boys" those are their teachers words
  6. a few more sight words to teach my kindergartners
  7. 33 years in kindergarten can make an excellent teacher or a kinda cranky teacher
  8. what a blessing it is to have so many fantastic parapro's in our school district
  9. I am a great teacher!!!
  10. I love my students! I'm so glad i show that love everyday

crazy dreams

rough sketch of three dreams
-someone i really don't care for comes to my house and is trying to romance me. i'm yelling at him to get out of my house!! (lovely)
-my boss is my dad! yeah talk about annoying anyhow he makes me made imagine that and i give him the silent treatment
-all the teachers at my school are going on an over night camping trip we stop at a gas station to get snacks and the person from my first dream is there and he gets on the bus with me i'm yelling at him to get off the bus and leave me alone. (of course he doesn't listen)

the strangest part, the love of my life is in all of these dreams behind me on the bus, at school, in the other room.

like i said crazy
