I got up extra early this morning in anticipation of going back to work, finally. And I need to leave early because the bridge is down to one lane traffic for the next 3 months or so. :P And it's raining! What a welcome back to work, huh?
Anyway, getting off the steampunk topic for awhile before I beat it to death (next time I'll probably talking about a couple of steampunk chars that I've created), I wanted to talk a little bit, in vague terms, about my job and my kids. My kids at my job.
I teach at a Montessori preschool, in the preschool class, which is the oldest group. I currently have 7 (soon to be 8) children in the class, all ranging from 4-5 years old. The newest one will be just 3, but he's ready to move up. One thing I love about my class is that my kids are making the leap into beginning reading. I mean, REAL reading! Sounding out words and reading a story. It's exciting for me. They're really smart kids, and I get to teach them all sorts of things. They're always asking questions, to the point of my insanity at times, but they're sweet kids. If I talk about them in the future, it'll be by initials only, and no pics. Safety first, you know!
I really can't wait to get to work and see what they've been up to while I've been sick. I know they've been well taken care of, because the head teacher's been covering my class, and she's an old pro at Montessori. I just hope they don't go nuts now that I'm back. But they probably will. Just my luck, huh? X3
