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!
