I can't believe this is my fourth year of teaching! Some things are getting so much easier, and some things about my teaching bug me more now that I can stop worrying so much about getting it all right. I know you never really ever learn all there is to learn about teaching (which is good--otherwise I would be so very bored), and I hope to see myself continue to improve this year.
My dog continues to be a fearsome doorstop stealer--she is constantly running off with the wedges from the admin, and this time I haven't found them again. Sometimes I'm not sure which is worse--pets or children! Hazel also will pick up items the kids leave lying around and bring it to my yard. Nothing like returning dog slimed hankies!
The rain yesterday smelled so good that I had to do some shameless sniffing as I patrolled the halls during prep. Despite all the mud and wet feet, I really enjoy rainy season!
