Hope you guys are all doing well and having a good weekend so far! I'm scrambling like a madwoman to get the apartment spotless before our landlord comes down to check it this afternoon.
I only had one class - my 8th graders. As I walked into the classroom, I noticed the balloons - they were everywhere. Then I turned and saw the chalkboard. You guys, I almost started bawling right there.
I tried to hide the tears, but it didn't really work. I gave them all permission to make fun of me - I totally deserved it. After the song was over, one of my students handed me a beautiful bouquet, card, and framed class photo.
