As a special education teacher if I have learned one thing it is "Be prepared to be UNPREPARED". My first 2 weeks of school have proven this theory. I spent my whole summer preparing my WHOLE year's worth of lesson plans, wrote them, copied them, made all the worksheets that goes with them only to find out after meeting my special kinders that I clearly have to MODIFY, MODIFY, MODIFY everything I planned. Oh, did I mention that MODIFY is also another word that is at the top of my teaching vocabulary? It is a good thing that I have learned to be flexible too! Okay, that is word #3 on my teaching vocab. But, as a teacher I know that everyday is a learning day for me too! We make the best of it, smile and remember tomorrow is always a new day!
Hope everyone is having a great school year so far!
