That's a lot of people. In one room. A first year teacher room. Without warning. Just sayin'.
Over the course of this year I will have, literally, four different (mentor-ish) people (each on a different level) coming into my classroom at various times to check on how things are going. Surely by December the scary-ness of that will have worn off.
Right now my kids totally think they are there to see what they are learning in first grade, how incredibly smart they are, and that they know how to follow rules the very first time they are given.
That's right. I put it on them.
It's working so far... I'm hoping that will not wear off by December :)
