As I was walking back from lunch today, I heard someone say, “Mrs. Peterson!” I searched until I saw a face I recognized.
“Mrs. Peterson! These are my triplets, and my other brother!”
To be fair, my first thought was, Wow, girl, you have a lot of brothers.
And then I thought, How precious that she’s so excited to introduce her family to me!
My co-teacher for Intermediate Algebra was sick today. 😦 I feared being able to get to all the kids without her, so I modified my plans a bit and all was well.
In fact, we finished earlier than anticipated, so I had students continue to work on their spiral review packet. About five minutes before the bell, I heard a kid say, “Whoa! This class went by fast!” (Music to every teacher’s ears, am I right?) And then another kid corrected him, “This class ALWAYS goes by fast!”
