I love teaching kindergarten.
Okay, you already knew that.
But just because I spend much of my time shaking my sillies out, creating rainbow magic with finger paint and learning the latest and greatest bristle block spaceship building techniques with five and six year old engineers ~doesn't~ mean I'm all sweetness and light.
I've got a dark side.
A sarcastic side.
A sassy side.
I'm letting her out for just a second here... maybe some of you will be able to relate.
I understand that you might be curious as to what kinds of learning tools and materials I have stockpiled for your children to use over the course of this special year. I must insist however, that you ~ASK FIRST~ before you enter my classroom (as I'm dismissing students outside) and start throwing open the doors that protect MY classroom library, MY teaching tools, MY equipment, MY learning props, and my STUDENTS' personal belongings.
And *should* I feel inclined to allow you to peruse these personal belongings (no, they're NOT all supplied by the school district for your child's use, **I** purchased them with my own money, thank-you-very-much), you will kindly close the cabinetry doors after you've gone snooping.
Okie dokie artichokie?
Boundaries people, boundaries. Not just for kindergarten mastery, you know?
