So I failed at NaBloPoMo. I am being evaluated next week in school so any blog writing free time was spent obessing/worrying/planning for next week. And as I mentioned in my last post I spend the majority of my day disciplining kids so I feel like I’m not teaching enough. And it stresses me out. I’ve heard of all kinds of discipline techniques but the reality is that I’m not consistent enough. I want it to be ok for a kid to get out of his chair to trade pencils if his is broken. If someone needs a tissue or an eraser or has a legitimate question I don’t mind if they get up and take care of things. I don’t want every kid to then get out of his/her chair just for the hell of it which is what they do. I can’t give an inch or they take a mile. I like a relaxed atmosphere which is next to impossible in kindergarten in my school. The other teachers are rigid but good teachers. I don’t like being that way. My way isn’t working well.
More later on something other than school.
