I survived my first 2 days with 6th graders. I realized that I’ve kinda missed teaching. I didn’t miss staying at school for 11 hours, getting home after 6pm, sitting down and realizing just how exhausting it can be to be on your feet all day, well, except for a 25 minute lunch. That’s right 25 minutes. All of you office people out there who enjoy hour lunch breaks where you get to eat at a real restaurant with waiters and such should be thankful. And on those days where you have to have a quick lunch, think of the teachers out there who don’t ever get to leave the building they work in for lunch.
Sorry! I forgot this wasn’t about self pity, but about Amish Friendship Bread. I wish I knew these kids…they look so very friendly.
