The second week of school is about to begin... I don't even know what I am doing tomorrow. I better get on that. Yikes. But- so far so good. I had a few kids that started being their angelic selves the second day! HELLO! Don't they know they are supposed to be well behaved the first week- then they can let their personalities shine!!! Apparently they didn't get the memo! I just need to learn how to deal with kids that act up just to get the laughs of the class. One kid I had to sit next to me while we played a game. And every time he went to talk I said "(his name), CONTROL!. Suprisingly- that did it. But I am NOT going to do that every day!
It is weird - in every single one of my classes, I have at least 2 people with the same name- 3 Katherines (one with a C) -in 2 classes, 2 Garretts, 2 Farids, 2 Hayleys, 2 Taylors, 2 Alexs, I am sure I am missing some. So not only do I have to learn names, but last names too! I think I need to come up with some fun nicknames. The Spanish teachers rename all their students with spanish names, I could rename them with sewing names- like blind hem, pin cushion, and pattern guide sheet. Ha ha!
