Easier but not easy

Each day is getting easier, but it's certainly not easy yet, and I don't expect it to ever be that way.

I am really proud of my students for how they have been making good decisions and helping each other, and while I feel that we have a challenging class, I can see how hard everyone is trying each day. I cannot wait to see how much my students grow and blossom this year, because I firmly believe each of them can be ready for 1st grade at the end of the year.

Also, I am very excited about the fact that the kindergarten team seems to be working together more. There are 8 of us, and for some reason, the team has never really worked together that well (or so I've heard from everyone). However, today, when my co-teacher left, she told me she hasn't felt this happy in a long time, and she really thinks that we are getting to a point where the 8 of us can make our classes great.

I told her I intend on being the glue that makes our team stick together. :) ...and she said she thinks I may be just the person to get us working as a team...so let's hope she's right, because I think if we're going to give ALL our kids the best start to school then we need to work together.

Off to bed.

(Oh, and by the way, I am currently driving a Jetta. It's odd having 4-doors on a car. Hopefully mine will be fixed by Friday...for those of you that don't know, someone made a 6-inch cut in the convertible top back in June. Pointless, but I had to get the entire top replaced so it's finally in the shop.)
