I have made it a month and a half

I have actually treaded through 6 weeks of school. It is hard to believe how fast time flies. I know many of you want pictures, and I am planning on taking my camera to school on Monday and getting some pictures of my classroom as well as some pictures of my students. Is that bad to post pictures of my students? I don't want to get fired or anything. I would love to show you how cute my room is. I am quite proud of it actually. I am getting in my groove and even jump roped with some of my students at recess. Who would have thought. I guess I like them enough to show them attention even when I don't have too! I guess I am starting to enjoy it a little more than the last month. YUCK! It was not very fun, but I am seeing the connection I am making and their smiles on their faces when they "get it" in Math. THAT IS THE REASON I TEACH. It was fun however to receive my first pay-check! Yippee! I will post pictures very soon. Check back.

Starting my Fourth Week

I really cannot believe I have made it three weeks and will be starting my fourth week on Monday. I really love it. It is extremely hard, but I still believe going to school in Heber and then driving up to Park City every day for 4 months through the winter WAS MUCH WORST. I think it gets a little easier every day, and I want so badly to touch each of my students in a way where it reaches deep in their souls. I try to make my class a "safe" place to be, and with 7 resource kids, two Special Ed. students, and 31 students total, I really have quite a lot on my plate. I will keep you informed as the weeks go by. I appreciate all of your words of encouragement and love. I love all of you!!!
