Back to School

I found this!  I must of never posted it.  I thought it was funny.  And even though it's old I thought I'd post it now anyway.


By the time Thanksgiving break got here I was about ready to loose my mind.  The week long break from school was much needed to say the least!

So on Monday as I drove to school feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the 3 weeks before Christmas break I gave myself a pep talk.

"Stay calm!"

"Don't let the students actions dictate my actions!"

"I AM the adult!"

"I love children!"

7 minutes into letting students in the school building... I gave a student lunch detention.


5 seconds after a kindergarten teacher walked up to her breakfast table she had to give out consequences to a 5 year old for calling another 5 year old a very ugly name.


But I recovered!  I thought "I cannot be #Done with this day at 7:37 in the morning.  I still have to make it to 3:45."  So I adjusted my attitude.  And planned to make the rest of the day a good day.

And it was.

It turned out to be a pretty good day.

I'm still counting down to Christmas break though (not in front of the students, just in my head)! Ha!


  1. I love finding old writing - thanks for sharing -
    I guess no matter what time of day it is we can always start over

  2. We have two days until Spring Break and I can relate to this post.

  3. I love the "I am the adult" reminder. That should become my mantra when life with my kids gets crazy!
