Alright, let me first start out by saying that I love teaching Kindergarten. I can't imagine teaching any other grade. Butr there is one thing, that I just, just, HATE! CRYING! The snot dripping from the nose, the huffing and puffing, the big pouty lip....enough ALREADY! I have a rule in my class (that I HAVE caught flack for in the past). You can only come cry to me if you are hurt on your body, or in your heart (feelings). I don't wanna see it if Jessie got your favorite book first, or you really wanted a purple paper.... Today I had one bawling! I just say "Please go to the restroom, get yourself a tissue and some water. You may rejoin us when you have yourself under control." I know it's a bit harsh, but it's like nails down a chalkboard for me! How do you deal with it. And be honest, if you think I'm mean, tell me. I need to hear it. I promise I won't cry!
