Yesterday spent spraypainting picture frames. Today spent hanging picture frames. And moving desks around. And moving bookcases around. And taping up more maps. And getting books from the library. And finalizing student placements. And getting rid of a really dirty carpet (gross). And staring at my big leaf that still hasn't been hung... Think I'm gonna write the word PATIENCE up on the board and leave it there all year, just to remind myself when I start to think and this and this and this and this... Gotta set the example, which is what this whole week will be - how to listen, how to read, how to share, how to wash your hands before lunch, how to ask a question, how to clean up, how to play on the playground... Sometimes the best teacher is just a great role model.
