I miss my students so much! I spent the day on a field trip to the zoo with some of them and popped into their classes to say hi at the end of the day. They were all much happier to see me now than they were last year! ;) And they've grown up so much.
I didn't realize how much I miss teaching. I mean, I love getting to be domestic and sleep in, but...I just adored my students last year. I don't know that another bunch will ever be as awesome as they were. I just wanted to stay there and hang out and make sure that their new teachers understood how great they are. I was a little sad to leave this afternoon, to be honest.
Also, my students' standardized test scores were AWE.SOME!
I was unsure about going back to teaching in Atlanta, but today sealed the deal that I have to. And I have to make another group of kids into math rockstars. Just remind me of this when I come back here ranting about how rambunctious they are.
