    I haven't gotten my "official" roster yet (school doesn't start until MONDAY!!!), but I have the list, and I'm very happy with it. I'm even happier because of a couple of things I heard:

    • (from a coworker in another grade) "her mom told the P that she would take her to another school if she wasn't in your class" (confirmed by a member of admin)
    • (from a parent upon learning her son is in my class) "Oh, thank God!"
    • (from another parent, same situation) "When I told him he was in your class, he couldn't stop smiling!"

    I'm not a braggart, and I rarely "blow my own horn," so to speak, but there are days when it just feels GOOD to be a teacher! I love my school! :love:

    It's not been the greatest week (think I'm having gall bladder issues), so this was especially sweet!

    Congrats. I too smiled when I got my list. We aren't supposed to have parent requests but all three kids who I wanted in my class I have. I could see maybe one making it but all three without outside influence. Naaaa. So right now 1/4 of my class is parents who "love" me. Yeaaaaaaa!!!
