Tomorrow I am participating in JA in a Day. For those who don’t know, JA is short for Junior Achievement. For those who don’t know, I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. For those who don’t know, JA in a Day lets me bring real life lessons in civics and finance to the classroom. For those you don’t know, children are our future ….
Cue music … teach them well and let them lead the way … show them all the beauty they possess inside … give them a sense of pride to make it easier …
Sing It! Ms. Houston. See y’all I’m verklempt!!!!
And enough with for those who don’t know Jilly Beans. I was told once that writing or speaking like that is condescending. I do not want to be that … condescending.
Anyway, moving along. I am super excited that I will have 2nd graders. The year before all that standardized testing baloney. I can’t wait to hear the clamoring and they “Hey Miss” to get my attention. I can’t wait to be with those little sponges who are sweet and innocent and full of hope. Remember that folks? Before the world was the world to us. I also can’t wait to eat in the cafeteria. Last time I did this, I took my lunch. Then I had nostalgia envy. I bet some are cringing but not me. Yummy!
And now that you’ve had your quota of I can’t wait! from me, I will say toodle-loo, ta-ta and au revoir. See ya later, unless you see me first. 🙂
As always, more to come.
