Yes, the time has come! Tomorrow morning I head back to work, back to the classroom and 24 little six and seven year olds. This time I’m sharing the job with another teacher, which is a whole new ballgame, and is so far going really well.
Today it was 43 degrees Celsius, so what did Paul and I do? Drag the bub and ourselves into the classroom to put up curtains. As you do. They’re very basic, but they do the job, which is cutting out glare but still allowing in natural light. Did you know that teachers (in public schools anyway) buy (and install) their own curtains. I’m just sayin’, y’all.
Pebble thought the classroom was great fun. Unfortunately it is the least toddler friendly place I can think of, and she proceeded to destroy the joint like a little tornado on legs. I tried putting on the interactive whiteboard with cinema screen style videos from ABC Kids. Alas, this was not nearly as enticing as rolls of sticky tape and glitter pens. In the end we got the job done, and no glitter pens were harmed.
Technically I’m only dropping in tomorrow for an hour or so to help greet the new arrivals. My official work days are Wed, Thurs, Fri. That’s when the real fun begins!
I better go and get some shut eye.
