Mrs. Moody is so proud of her class for being able to come in each afternoon and do calendar on their own.  They are so kind and helpful with one another and our Calendar Bear is so great to keep the class engaged.  Yay that they are teaching each other!

Principal Moment

There are certain things that a teacher must never do:  Never pour Plaster of Paris down the sink.  Never stand on a bathroom scale when teaching your students about pounds and ounces.  Never throw a wilted flower away in front of the child who gave it to you no matter how droopy it is.  And never forget to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. 

On St. Patrick’s Day, children fall into one of four categories- those who cover themselves from head to toe in green, those who wear one or two articles of green clothing, those who forgot and wear no green at all, and the tricksters.  These are the kids who appear to not be wearing any green.  But as soon as you point this out to them they shout, “Yes, I am!” then bend over and reveal the two-millimeter stitch of green thread on the back of their shoe. 

Every year some children will argue.  “Mrs. Killian, so and so pinched me and I have green on!” The child will lift up his/her pant leg or shirt or sleeve to reveal a green sticker.  Then I hear something like: “Nuh-huh…did not” “Yes, you did!”  “NO!  I fake-pinched you.”   Four years of college and a master’s cannot prepare you for this stuff!  Thank goodness St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday this year.

Principal Newsletter March 5th - 9th

Principal Moment

I don’t know why, but kids like to talk about their parents’ ages.  It is a predictable subject of conversation.  Every year, at some time, I will hear one student ask another, “How old is your mom?”

I remember when I first heard the question.  I was twenty-two years old, fresh out of college and newly married. 

When I heard students announce their parents age as thirty-five; I thought, wow, their parents are old!

Pretty soon I was thirty-five, and I heard the question again.  Wow, I thought.  I’m the same age as their parents.

I still hear the question.  Wow, I think.  I’m older than the parents.  What happened?  Where did time go?

Teachers are Peter Pans in a way.  It’s so easy to lose track of time.  You forget that you’re getting older, because they’re always the same age.  You teach in the same classroom year after year.  You wear the same dress.  You tell the same jokes.  Everything is always the same.

Then one day you are kicked into the reality that you are getting older when you receive a graduation announcement or a wedding invitation, or when the store cashier says, “Hi, Mrs. Killian.  Remember me?”  Ahhh...the circle of life.
