I think these are fun; so here's another one; just hit the REPLY WITH QUOTE and fill in your own answers. Me and My School: ~Do you get excited when your Scholastic order comes in?? yes! If the kids aren't around, I rip open that box!! But, if the kids are there, I calmly wait until they leave!! hehe ~What do you do for lunch? I work part-time, so I have lunch out or at home. ~Is there something less-than-perfect about your school?? I work at a private school and it would be nice if we were paid better. ~What do you love about your school? I love that I can go to my director about anything. ~How do you feel about lesson plans? I hate doing them, but they keep me in check! ~What do you think about your new class so far? My students and parents are fabulous! Couldn't be any happier! ~Are you troubled by any one parent so far??? nope! ~Are you feet holding up? they do fine for part-time work! hehe ~Looking forward to any holidays yet??? having today off, Labor day, is nice. I really love Thanksgiving time and I am looking forward to that! ~Do you get along with your colleagues? I do; though I have a mindset that I am here to work...for my students and their parents; My co-workers are not my friends, but as a colleague, I would help them in any way that I can. ~Something you wish you could have in your classroom:A bigger classroom would be really nice! ~Any peeves already? I wish we could wear jeans and a special school shirt on Fridays like many of the schools around here. That would be really nice; I have asked about this for years and they just won't budge. ~Do you work with someone who is GREAT?!!! I really love my teacher aide; she's strict with the kids. ~Do you work with someone who should be doing something else?!!! unfortunately yes ~What do you do when the bell rings at dismissal? Start picking up the chairs and get ready for the next day. ~One of the perks of your job:Working in a private school is wonderful; awful pay, but the atmosphere is great! ~Something that would make this a SUPER year for you: wow; the kids and parents are great, so it would be SUPER if the school handed me extra $$$ in each paycheck. I don't mean to gripe so much about this either; I wouldn't be there if the pay didn't help out with some home bills. ~If you could give advice to a new teacher, it would be: Pray, pray, pray...pray for your students, their parents, and yourself daily.
