Teaching was easier today, and I definitely had more energy left at the end of the day than I did on Monday.  One of the main reasons was that I was less nervous.  Another was that the room that I taught in had a small couch, so I was able to lie down a little during lunch.  I had been a little nervous.  I have spent almost my entire career teaching upper elementary, and today I taught in a first grade classroom.  I learned two really great things today though: I’ve figured out a way to take care of myself when I return to work in the fall,  (get a couch), and working with the little kids was kind of fun.  Not a bad day!
