Well, I got my first subbing call today, before I'd even had breakfast! I showered, threw a few books in my bag, some pens and a granola bar, and flew down there in 30 minutes! It was a kindergarten class, full day, but I only got to stay half--I was plenty tired, even with the half day! Kindergarten, having had less than a week of school...wow. It's exciting--but they were actually pretty good! It was fun.
If you thought first grade was good for funny children quotes, kindergarten is a gold mine:
Funny responses for "What's your name?":
"That's too hard."
(turns around) "Mom, you tell her."
Student: "You're not Miss R."
Me: "That's right. She's gone today."
Student: "So you're Miss R. now? Do I call you Miss R. still?"
Thanks for your prayers, all!
