Teacher AKA Chaos Coordinator

// If you can read this, thank your first grade teacher //
p.s. really hoping that's true for my students after this year!


Look ma! It's my first day of first grade! 
our motto + the enlarged student drawings I so lovingly refer to as "my ugly kids"
This tree! Bringing dreams to life since '17. My mom and I spent a whole day crafting it
and it's definitely my favorite part of the room.
 (When the AC is on, the branches sway in the wind.. *teacher heart eyes*)
*note to self: NEVER MAKE A SET OF TASSELS AGAIN. IT TAKES FOREVER. 



Guess who just finished her first day of teaching first grade? PAISLEY WARREN. That's right! After many months of planning & getting ready, the big day finally came. Tuesday morning I met the faces of 60 sweet & eager first graders who will be in my class for the next year. You may be thinking 60??? Must be a typo!

A THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL. 

I have 60 kids FOR REALS and I'm still trying to take it all in. 

Ya see, my school is a Spanish Dual Immersion school, which means I teach two groups of first grade. The kids do a half day in english and a half day in spanish.  In the morning, I have a group of 30 kids that I teach Language Arts & Math to, and in the afternoon I do the same thing with another group of 30 kids. I KNOW. SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE HUH? 

The first day went off without a hitch  and even though I was exhausted from such a whirlwind of a day, I chalk it up as a success. We only had 10 kids lose their lunchbox, 4 kids cry, and 1 get sent clear out to kanarraville (a 30 minute drive) because we put her on the wrong bus. (still crying myself over the trauma I caused that sweet innocent first grader.) 

In all seriousness though, I love the school I am teaching at, I have THE MOST AMAZING TEAM, and I'm so excited to be able to do what I love everyday and get paid for it. Score! 

And now, this tired teacher is going to attempt to turn off her teacher brain & spend some time with her cute husband... who has probably forgotten who I even am ;) 
Can't believe I'm in the career / teacher stage of my life! 
XOXO
Love P
