I hope to get back to posting more regularly! My husband had surgery, school started again, and my husband FINALLY returned to work just a couple of weeks ago (after being out since April!). My school has been SUPER crazy this year! I'm a kindergarten teacher, and I not only had to move classrooms over the summer, but started a new schedule, AND we've been overloaded with TWENTY-SEVEN 5-year-olds in each class for over a month (that's 54 kids I have!!!)! We just finally hired a new section of kinder, and most of our kids have moved over to get our class sizes down to acceptable levels. I would say it's smooth sailing for a while, but with tons of assessments left to finish (I still have 45 kiddos), and conferences a week away, I fear that, sans tonight, I will have little time for blogging. The pic kinda shows how all the kinder teachers have been feeling at my school with these incredibly high numbers! I know "hammered" gives a different connotation, but we've been through a brutal battle of 5-year-old midget alligator invasion! BTW-Midget Alligators are my affectionate name for my kinders.
