I have been wanting to link up with Deb over at Fabulously First for what seems like forever now and right this second definitely seems like the perfect time to finally jump on in. Deb is hosting the most delightful linky party - it seriously captured my heart the moment I saw it pop up on my roll. It wasn't all that long ago that I was just starting out . . .
- Just because it's written in that plan book of yours, it doesn't mean that you actually have to get to it. And . . . if you do get to it, you don't always have to finish the lesson once you start it. Read your kiddos and do not be afraid to "pull the plug" if it isn't working.
- This leads me right into my second wisdom nugget. Things never go as planned . . . and that is okay. You gotta think on your feet and adjust as you go. It's what makes teaching so much fun (well . . . this crazy teacher lady thinks so).
- It's going to be the absolute ride of your life. You will cry. You will get angry. You will be exhausted. You will eat, sleep, and breathe school. But, you also will get more hugs in one day than you've had in your entire life. You will see your babies grow and blossom. You will learn priceless lessons about yourself. And, you will love it. Just give it time . . . it truly is the greatest job in the world!
This was so much fun this evening. Thanks again to Deb over at Fabulously First for the opportunity to do a little late-night reflection. Won't you think about joining up and sharing your thoughts too??
Well, I am outta here and off to catch up on some zzzzz's. Check back mid-morning for a sweet little writing freebie. Thanks for visiting friends. I'll see you tomorrow.
