Teaching since Fall 2001 – 3rd year in 2nd grade

Just the Morning

6:40 arrive at school late. Staff is milling around parking lot. Custodian is out, sub custodian doesn’t have keys. Library door (inside) was unlocked so once Councilor let us in I could get to my room.

7:00 – 7:35 students start to arrive for tutoring, followed by a sub librarian. Thank god for Library buddies, they arrived, booted up the computer for the sub, got out the crates and shelved the books. I switched around several students to the right classes, unenrolled several students who have left and sent Tech 3 e-mails of new students to enroll.

7:35 – 7:55 4th grade teacher is running late so I watch her class. An aide comes in so I can run and check how 1st grade and kinder check out books. I ask the Kinder teacher scheduled to day to put a paper on top of his books marked K. That way the sub knows to put them on the special kinder shelves so the kids have a bigger choice.

7:55 – 8:40 5th grade. They finish their scripts and do a bang up job. It is good they were able to work independently because the library sub is trying to check in books using the wrong bar code.

8:40 – 9:25 4th grade successmaker time on all three subjects. I find a whole class didn’t get enrolled in Readers Workshop, fix
