First Day Of School 2009-2010
Well, I sent the kids to school for the first time this morning, for the first time this year. Chloe went to Mr. Cole's first grade. He's her "best buddy" she tells me. He's a great teacher. My other kids all pretty much felt the same way about him. He makes each child really feel like they're his favorite. Yes, this is my third round with him and I'd do it again if I had to. He's great!!! Never had any problems with him. Angela's in Mr. Tousely's third grade class. He's new. I just met him for the first time last night and my first impression is I really liked him and usually my first impressions are correct. Not always, but usually. I really liked the letter he sent earlier also. We'll see how he does with my most stubborn child who thinks she's the center of the universe. He's sort of got a class full of those. All the girls in that class are drama queens who expect to be the center of attention all the time. Talk about a tough way to introduce him to the charter school! They can be a lot of fun, but boy do they take every ounce of energy out of you. I've worked with them before volunteering at the school. They are quite a handful! Jeremiah is in Mrs. Knott's 5th grade. She's a great teacher, too. He's actually had her before. She was his third grade teacher. Actually, the way it's worked out he's been in the same classrom the 2 years before this as well. He had a different teacher last year, but the teachers keep changing classrooms and it's worked out with the teachers that he's ended up in the same classroom for three years in a row. He thinks it's cool. I would think it was boring. He wanted to get Mrs. Knott because he knew she had moved back into that classroom. He helped her move on the last day of school last year. Anyway, that's all for now.
