As Ready As I'll Be This Year

Center of Power: Room With a View (of the room):
I'm starting wih 12 boys and 8 girls.


I have no mind set at all about the class or students before the first day. Everyone starts out lined up evenly and the whistle blows to start the year. By the end of the first day some have pulled out ahead...some are deciding whether to run or not...some sit down and refuse to start.

Your kids are so lucky to have you as their First Grade teacher and probably don't even know it.....Look at the bright side -- When you REALLY need a "Zen moment" go to the beach, sit on the sand, and listen to the waves. How bad can ANYTHING be if you can do that?

That's your answer to everything! Go to the beach! Not a bad idea...
