I can hardly believe that September is over and school has been in session for over 3 weeks now. It still seems very strange to be at the school, but not teaching. I have been taking my grandsons to school and I got to experience gradual entry Kindergarten for the first 2 weeks. I must say that it is easier in some ways to have a class full of students rather than one child who needs to be entertained while waiting to go to school for an hour at various times of the day.
Now that he is settled into his classroom and on the same schedule as his brother, it is much easier. Even little kids need a routine!
Here are my reasons for retiring. Aren't they adorable? I love them to pieces and I am glad to be able to spend time with them. Sometimes it is difficult to see them as much as I would like, but when I do have the opportunity, it makes my heart feel so happy.
Our summer was full of adventures and family time. I am hoping we will have many more opportunities to share family time and make memories throughout the year.
I have been busy updating my materials in my Teachers Pay Teachers store and creating new materials for some of the new teachers at the school. This also makes me happy because I know that I am still able to make a difference in the lives of children even though I am retired. I am also going to be volunteering at the school so I will get to do what I love and not have to deal with the politics. WIN-WIN don't you think?
