My First Day

My first day as a TK teacher was wonderful. I love my class they are adorable. My biggest problem - I need to quit thinking like a first grade teacher. It is ok that they don't know how to write their name. But guess what 13 of them can write their name. So it is all good

My favorite part of the day was when one of the babes was crying. She said, "I don't want to grow up.  I don't want to make my mommy happy. I don't want to do homework". She stopped crying when I told her that she didn't have homework, her mommy did. The tears turned off immediately. It was obvious that mommy was coaching her at home. So cute

I love being able to watch them interact. I have the time built into my day to do that. I am going to write down the things they say, out of the mouth of babes
Pin It!


  1. That's such a cute story! And so nice that many can write their names. That's impressive! Hope tomorrow is just as wonderful!

  2. Aw that's so sweet. Love that you had a great first day!
