End of Year Jitters

For me, and I do think many teachers out there will agree, there are three points in the school year that are the most hectic...
The beginning:

Gizmo
It's just as scary for us as it is for them.  We don't know what we're getting.  Nuh-uh, and those nervous little people you send off to us in the morning?  Yeah, they're a little like Gremlins... they're really cute...and cuddly...and sweet...and unsure of what to do...they're scared...they're strangers to us...they're reeeeeally quiet...and know what? We're scared of them too!
Then the middle happens...and happens...and happens...and there are ups and downs...and twists and turns...and we fall in love with those little people...and they make us laugh...and sigh...and cry...and pull out our gray hair...and just when we think we got 'em all figured out...we have to pack it up...test them out...write reports...direct them in end of the year shows...and keep teaching them while they are in summer time mode...and wanting to play...and they scrape their bodies across wall...and drag their bodies down the hallways...and you swear that the children you have spent the past 9 months with truly are Gremlins and the sweat dripping from their little foreheads has caused them to turn into this...
Stripe!
 
So...right now I am MIA for a bit because I am busy trying to do this...

 
Love,
Teacher-Mom
