A new school year

I finished my first week of teaching!! Yay me! I have grown to really love 5th grade and how cute and fun these kids can be.

I have been a little apprehensive about this year partly because there is only 2 5th grade classes which means large class sizes, and the other part is that I was going to be including an autistic child into my classroom full time. This child came to me for reading last year and really flourished in my class, so the principal and special ed decided to place him back in my room with only minimal help from special ed. Much to my surprise he has been doing great, the things that would normally send him into a state of panic and then lead to crying on the floor, is just shrugged off and he moves on to the next task. The thing that we are working on now is not always telling me every time he gets something wrong on his paper. ha ha

Even though my class is large I have loved these kids from the moment they walked into my room. They are so eager to learn and just make me laugh! I am so blessed to have a job that makes me laugh and watch them learn. I hope they can see how much I care for them and how much I want them to grow in my classroom.

I've been somewhat concerned about this year partly because there exists simply 3 6th level courses which means substantial category sizes, along with the some other part is i always would definitely possibly be including a autistic little one into my own school room regular.
