Today and the next two Mondays I'll be with the same group of kindergarten students.
At the end of the day today, I realized a couple of things. One, that I had worked three consecutive business days. That's the first in a long time.
Two, I am unaccustomed to standing for most of the day. I'm feeling it a little bit. It reinforces the idea that I need to do a better job taking care of myself.
I don't have a lot of lovely anecdotes today. But, the teachers have been very welcoming of me, and that means a lot to me. I've been open about telling them that seeing how hard they work should be required of parents. I think they appreciate that someone "from the outside" finally understands.
