This was my first year working in first grade and let me tell you it will not be the last. I loved it so much and I loved every single one of my little peeps. I also love this lady for teaching me so much about being a teacher. I learned so much about classroom managment. I witnessed her insane energy and her ability to captivate little minds and make learning fun. When I am a teacher and need a pick me up, or some energy or excitement I will observe her teaching for 10 minutes and my burn-out will be cured.
I used to call her kitty kat because her name is Kat and then she told me to call her meowmeow. That makes her even cooler.
First graders are hilarious. I'll always remember one day meowmeow was teaching a lesson on plurals, not that interesting. She was so excited and crazy about it though, the kids thought it was the coolest thing ever. At one point little Jose G. couldn't even contain his excitement and his eyebrows shot up and he gasped and covered his mouth in excitement and was just sitting there, listening and giggling with excitement. About plurals. Awesome.
I like to watch the kids when she's teaching. They are all looking straight at her with smiles on their faces. Seriously guys sometimes I don't know if this classroom is real life.
I love first graders.
I will close with this lettle gem.
Remember when your teacher told you they didn't have favorite students? They secretly did.
