And the kids keep coming!

The first week of school has ended and overall I have to say that it was a very good week for me. I'm tired, but happy with how my class has adjusted so far.

The thing I'm not happy about---getting another student on Monday. It will be student number 24! Apparently, Dade County doesn't see the need to worry about that silly little state law that says there should be no more than 18 kindergarten students in a class.

The worst part of it all is feeling guilty about not wanting that many students. I look at their smiling faces and know that my room wouldn't be the same without them, but still daydream of hearing that another teacher has been hired.

All this stress isn't good for me so I treated myself to those fajitas. LOL! The cute delivery guy showed up looking cute, of course. He had his smile all ready for me as soon as I opened the door. It was the perfect way to end the week!


  1. Thank you for the cute word art!

    I work in a middle school. The goal is 22 kids per class with the exception of band, chorus, and PE. Those get TONS of kids it seems.

  2. Sadly, it's not just Dade County doing this. It's a wide spread practice here in Florida. Don't feel guilty. It's not the kids themselves you don't want. But more that you know you can't truly do justice to that number of children. Plus, it's just plain wrong to give you more than you are hired to teach. That means extra work for you with no additional pay.

    Thanks for the great word art.

  3. Love this sentiment! I say this to my 13yo boy every morning when I wake him up! Too funny!
