Back To Work

So I'm back to work- inservices and meetings this week, but students start tomorrow. I am looking forward to seeing the kids again. I have been informed by the aides that in my absence, the substitute teacher had to hide my photo because one of the students would take it off the wall and kiss it, and refuse to work with her. "No new teacher" he'd say, "circle time with Miss Faith". And the behaviorist said that in one observation session (about 1 1/2 hours) this student asked 19 times for "Miss Faith".

The aides handled everything beautifully during my 4 months away. The classroom is in order and the kids made good progress on their goals; so there's no doubt that I'm not indispensable. But it's still nice to be missed.

Oh, I'm so excited for you. The fact that your students insisted on Miss Faith does not surprise me at all.

I kiss your picture on a daily basis and say, "I want Miss Faith!" (okay that was a fib). But I do wish I could come by and visit you whenever I felt the urge.

Honestly, that is how Kasia and I feel sometimes. When can we see Miss Faith? Love you girl. Glad to hear that you are back to work.
