It's time once again for Positive Fridays! I was so honored to have received a phone call on Monday at 7:15 that woke me up! It was from one of my favorite schools to sub at. I was told a teacher had just called in sick and they wanted me to come in and sub for her first graders!
I had subbed several times in Kindergarten the second semester last school year at this school so these children already knew me. They were so excited to see me! I received a ton of smiles and a few hugs from the boys and girls. They were so well behaved and it was only day 4 for them! They made me so proud by walking mostly in a quiet line and received compliments from a Kindergarten teacher and 2 students who I think were in 2nd grade! The 2nd graders had smiles on their faces too! The first graders earned themselves some smarties because they are just so smart and stickers!
I also got to talk with a couple of the Kindergarten teachers who I had subbed for previously and one who I will be subbing for the 31st! I also saw 2 of my dear teaching friends who I used to teach with.
The principal was so happy that I came to help out and the office staff was their usual kind selves!
Unfortunately, this was the only day I got to sub this week. Hopefully they'll be tons of positives from subbing next week!
In blog news, I can't believe I'm over 126,000 views! We zipped past 125,000 this week!!! I have over 800 fans on Facebook and many of you are using my teaching materials in your classroom or at home. This means the absolute world to me! Thank you so much for joining me on my journey of subbing (hopefully soon to be teaching my own class) and blogging!
Are you back to teaching yet? If so share your positives! I hope everyone who is back to teaching is off to a terrific start!
