So, yesterday was our first day of co-op. I was looking forward to it. As a trained professional teacher, I was excited to get back into the ring. And boy did I have fun gathering and planning ideas for my one 45 min science class.
But wow! Was I ever caught off guard. This tenure teacher, never knew what I was up against. All my training and experience just gave me a big head…that I could handle anything, but low and behold I was knock down. Oh how different it is teaching kindergarteners.
So, to all my teacher friends who teach or taught kindergarteners…bless you and thank you!
Thank you for teaching them..
… how to sit in their chairs and stay there
… how to listen to the teacher without talking
… how to follow directions and pay attention
You made my life as a 3rd grade teacher so much easier. I never knew how much training you did.
So, from the bottom of my heart thank you again.
But can I ask just one more favor?
Tell me how you did it?
