We just wrapped up our second week of school and things are running smoothly! Arrival and dismissal routines are working well. Recess and lunch transitions are quick and most kinks have been worked out. I had the opportunity to read a story to each class today and share a bit about myself with students. I told each class that I am here to help them celebrate their accomplishments, help them if they’re having a hard day, and to help them figure out how to fix mistakes. I think we have an absolutely wonderful student body and I’m excited to continue getting to know your students.
