Loving It!

Of course, I've been very busy trying to get in the swing of things at work. The great news is, I am loving this more than I ever imagined possible. I don't want to gush, because I know I'm still in the honeymoon stage...but I can tell that there are a lot of things about this position that are very different than any other teaching job I've had. I've never been an elementary school teacher, and I never thought I would like that. This just proves how little I knew about myself.
I love fifth grade. The kids are great. I enjoy teaching all the subjects...including MATH! I almost feel like I'm "playing teacher" like I did when I was a kid. I believe I'm where I should be right now, and it is a great feeling. (Once again, thank you, God!)

Erhan is doing well on the road to recovery. He is still on a large dose of predinsone and is being monitored closely. He is still weak, but is improving steadily.

The kids are fine. School is going well for all three.

Time to get to bed so I can wake up bright and early.

Congratulations! The kids are lucky to have you for a teacher! When I was a kid, my teachers were all burned out and mean! Of course, teachers are so different now - back then - in the stone age aka the 70's - teachers never actually spoke to their students!

Lauren, My name's Marta, and I live in London. My surname is Finaldi, and seeing as Finaldi isn't all that common, I wondered if we were somehow related. All of my grandfather's family is from a town called Poggiomarino, Naples, Italy. The fact that you're a teacher is also wierd, all of my italian family is or has been a teacher at some point. I have family in Australia, Italy and South Africa, but I know all of them...it would be really wierd if we were family, so do let me know, please!
Take care!
