Welcome to Teaching Ever AfterHey Everybody! Welcome to my new blog, Teaching Ever After! I am excited to begin sharing all of the great things that are happening in my classroom. This is my 6th year of teaching. I started off in Kindergarten and now happily reside in 2nd grade.
I just returned from maternity leave this past week. I had my beautiful daughter, Norah, in June. I also have a handsome little 3 year old, Gavin. I'm not sure why they call it the "Terrible-Two's" because I have to say 3 has been so much more trying! I love my kiddos to death and missed them terribly last week. I am so happy it is the weekend! I am sure you will hear a lot about what they are doing. I am so proud of every little thing they do! Gavin was born with Cerebral Palsy, so his milestones are a time to celebrate. His CP is very mild, but he is still unable to walk, but he WILL get there! He also has a peanut allergy that I blog about at firstname.lastname@example.org. Norah started rolling over about 3 weeks ago and is OBSESSED! That is great except for the fact that she can't get herself back and she cries until you flip her over. I turn my back and she is back on her belly! Ugh she is a pistol!
Since I have been on maternity leave things haven't been the most consistent in my classroom. We started the year off with one substitute and she got a full time job several weeks into the leave. So they hired a retired teacher to cover the rest of my leave. Needless to say I am spending some time on classroom management. They are a nice group of kids, but I just prefer things a certain way. LOL! They are VERY quick learners. I already have them saying, "May I please..." I love it! My husband thinks I am crazy for making them say that, but I think it's great!
