Student of the Month Assembly
It’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and our school district decided to have school today. Well, a lot of teachers are out because of traveling and we didn’t get enough subs. One sub for a kindergarten teacher was late, so I had her class. It was time for the Student of the Month Assembly and she wasn’t here yet so I took both classes down to the Multi Purpose room for the assembly. A class which has many of my students from last year was there first, and as I came in with almost 50 kids, they were watching me and one of them said, “Wow, you sure have a LOT of kids!” I said, “Yup! but I can handle it.” She looks at me and shakes her head, “You couldn’t handle us……”.
I almost forgot, there is this ONE little girl in the other teacher’s class. Well, let’s just put it this way, she was the first kindergartner this year that the specialists, (such as PE teacher) learned the name of…… nice kid, just wacky as heck. Every time I see her, her teacher is rolling her eyes. Anyway after the two kids from her class got their awards this little girl spent the rest of the assembly asking me, “When’s it my turn?” “When’s it my turn?” I told her it was all her teacher’s fault, talk to her………. the way she was looking at me, I figure she was thinking it was MY fault she didn’t get picked……BUT the last kid called up by the principal? Had the same first name as this girl. Guess who popped up and ran up there? So she’s looking at the principal expectantly, and HE’S looking at me questioningly, and I say, “Hey, you DID call her name…….”
