Today I got to see my for reals class lists for the first time. Because I'm moving grade levels, I'll have a lot of the same kids I had my first year teaching, as well as a bunch of kids I know from just being around.
Y'all, I am so excited about this.
Almost every kid, I was all, "Oh, I love her! Oh, he's so great! Oh, I've always wanted to have him!" I only have, like, three kids that I thought, "Hmmm...that might be challenging at points," and I don't have any kids that I was horrified about. (Of course, that's because I haven't had any kids yet that would totally horrify me to have again. There's one I'd prefer not to, but I could deal if I needed to.)
I can not even wait till Thursday when I get to see them all and have them in my classroom and start talking about the year and getting to know the new kids and relearning about the ones I know already....
Yay new school year!
