Walking to the classroom this morning, lunch bag/purse-toter girl and I stop to take a photo of the city all around us shrouded in fog. It’s helpful to have an assistant when my hands need to do other things. Like snap pictures.
I was overwhelmed by the generous response to yesterday’s post. I honestly was not fishing for handouts and didn’t anticipate so many kind offers to send supplies to our class. Nevertheless, it couldn’t have come at a more opportune time than NOW. Our school budget is frozen, huge layoffs will be occuring soon all across the district. No money to turn the wheels of the big machine.
Upside down lips and teeth will continue to get pasted onto little heads. Fruit cakes will continue to make their way onto hungry pages. Young minds will continue to spin with gigantic ideas.
And though I appreciate the sentiment in your accolades I am undeserving of such praise. I am an average teacher with occasional bouts of greatness. No aw-shucks false modesty at work here. Just telling it like it is. Besides you haven’t seen me with a bee in my bonnet.
