Day 3 - The End

This morning, I dragged myself out of bed and got dressed for another day. Lesson plans were written and ready to go. I hugged 2 kids goodbye and wished them a good day at school. I turned to hug the third one when he said my tummy doesn't feel so good. I tried to quickly step away... I knew what was coming. BUT he still managed to vomit all over me.

First thought: "YAY! I don't have to go to work today!"
Second thought: "Poor baby! Does he have a fever?"
Third thought: "What are my kinders gonna do without me? Another new teacher will only add to the chaos!"

Okay so that was probably the wrong first thought to have. I did call to see if I had any backups who could take a sick little boy. None available. I probably shouldn't be happy about it but I was. Kinda - I miss the kinders. I worried about them.

I called in sick only to find my child dressed and ready for school. Ummm... why are you going to school?? "I LOVE my teacher! I can't stay home, I will miss multiplication!" He begged to go so I let him.

It was a good thing I did not go to work today as my little two left to walk to school they were attacked by the neighbors dogs. AGAIN! Ugh! I saved them before they got bit  but they were really scared. I don't blame them.

It seems like incident #4 is the magic number as EVERYONE has been at my house today. The police. The sheriff.  Animal Control. They have been interviewing all the neighbors, pulling all the records (this is #9 if you add in all the reports from all the neighbors), and preparing a criminal case.

It has been quite the adventure today.

The police department says the kids should not walk to or from school until the situation has been neutralized.  Which means I can't work if I have to drive them to and from school. So I was gonna have to call and say "I can't work the rest of the week" when I got an email saying the position has been cancelled and the teacher is FINALLY taking over her own class.

So now that the saga has ended... tomorrow I will have some new posts about some exciting things! Oh and I will have all day tomorrow to catch up on the homework I am behind on.

I will miss my students. I truly LOVE being in the classroom but I am NOT an early-childhood kinda girl. =)

Lesson learned!

I am sorry that your kids are sick and the whole drama that happen today.....was this teaching position through your local school board....or was this just a "help us out" type of thing?

I hope your kids are feeling better soon. Get caught up on your homework and catch your breath. You did what you could and got out before it "REALLY" got the best of you.

Holy Drama, Batman! I'm glad that craziness is over for you. Hope the dog situation is taken care of quickly!

I'm so sorry it ended up like it did! What a way to start off. I hope your kids are feeling better and look forward to hearing from you

Your first days sounded terrible, so I am glad it is over for your own mental health. Hope something better comes along for you.

They cancelled your position by email? That's awful! But its probably for the best considering how they were treating you.

I hope your baby feels better soon.

Sending hugs your way.

Hi Misty,
You seem pleased, so I am pleased for you. I hope you still kept your appointment at the beauty salon. It sounds like you still need it. I would like to add that you shouldn't rule out littlies just yet. There were lots of other extenuating circumstances this time around.
I'm glad you have learned something from the experience too. Now chill out and enjoy your new found freedom. :)

Misty what a crazy week you have had already! I hope everything works out with the dogs and that you all stay healthy. It sounds like you had some divine intervention this morning, yucky intervention, but intervention none the less :) Can't wait to hear about the exciting things.
