We’re a couple days into the school year and as usual, it’s been fast and furious. I’m trying to blog a bit more on my classroom blog, especially early in the year, so there’ll be some content there before parents attend Meet the Teacher night. You can read about the first couple days in my middle school classes in The First Day and Mapping Cultures.
As tiring as the first couple days have been, I am reminded why I love teaching so much. My students are such wonderful, quirky, confident, shy, hilarious young people. I’ve already started my funny quote list of things that students say that make me laugh. Below are some of my 8th grade students who I also taught as 6th graders. I love that they still sit under the table to write, even though they are significantly taller :)
