I am Awesome

Student 1: Miss (me) is really good at that!
Student 2: Yeah, I know, she's so good at that...

They were referencing tracing pattern blocks.

Yes!! I am awesome at tracing!!

Haha... gotta love the things that are important to kids ;o) I should be a professional tracer.

I can't say enough how much I love the teachers at this school. They are all so wonderful and supportive... and inclusive. The primary teachers even invited me to brunch at one of their houses today!

The house: cute. The food: excellent. The company: couldn't be better.

We talked quite a bit mostly about not-school-related things but a little about school too... it was a nice mix. My cooperating teacher and the 1st grade teacher both got married over the summer, and we watched bits of the 1st grade teacher's DVD from her wedding. It was beautiful... story book quality. Cinderella would have been jealous... and that means a lot coming from me, I'm a wedding photographer so I've been to a lot of weddings!
