Today was a big day for Rach.
I fretted over my outfit.
Wondered and worried about what it would be like.
Gulped down a mug of green tea and took several deep breaths.
We had a few inches of snow on the ground and my thoughtful husband took a worry off my mind by starting and scraping my car this morning.
That boy takes care of me so well.
The slowness of my drive this morning only added to my anticipation.
What would the kids be like?
What would we do all day?
What would my co-workers be like?

The center I am working for currently has three classrooms – infant, toddler, and 3-5 year olds.
They are in the process of splitting the 3-5s into two classrooms – 3-4 and 4-5.
When the new classroom is ready I will be the lead teacher of the 4-5 year olds.
In the waiting period before the room is complete, I am the assistant teacher for the current 3-5s.
The kids? Adorable and so stinking smart.
My co-workers? Kind and full of laughter.
And while I love working with another teacher and learning how the center works, I am so excited for my own classroom.
Which is something I thought I’d never see.
So here’s to a good night’s sleep.
And for the second day tomorrow.

  1. I'm so glad it was a good first day! I was the same way on my first day of work at the preschool I'm at. 🙂 And I can completely relate to you about having great co-workers–they definitely make a difference and make work THAT much more fun.

    Excited to hear more of your teaching stories! I feel like we have so much in common and it's nice to read all of your excitement and share it on my end, too. 🙂
