So not what I expected

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a teacher. When I was in second grade I would sit behind a tree during recess at Marshallville Elementary school with a small notebook and "grade" papers that my "students" had done. I kept a gradebook. I would make worksheets using old carbon paper passed down from my Grandma Charlotte. I asked for school supplies for Christmas. Most kids wanted to go to Toys R Us...I wanted to go to Wooster Office Supply. During summer break I would dress up almost everyday and force my younger brother to play school. He had homework, which he was expected to do. I bought old text books and an old school desk from the Goodwill. Obsessive? Maybe. Passionate? I guess. Now that my first year of teaching is a little more than half over can I just say that it isn't at all what I have been dreaming about...Stay tuned.

    I remember those old school playing days, and always going to Wooster office supply... I'm very proud of you.

    Love, Mom

    Maybe you should keep playing school, then it might not be so difficult at times. Or, practice on your little brother again:)xo g
