|Tuesday Slice of Life with Two Writing Teachers|
I missed an entire week of teaching last week, due to my family emergency.
The week was a blur of hospital extremes - long days of hurry up and wait, fervent discussions with doctors, nurses, family; responding to alarms, beeps, tests, results; exhausting. My Mom is now in a nursing home near my parents' home in South Carolina, where she will get intensive rehab to regain, hopefully, her ability to walk and to feed herself.
What did I dream about? The preschoolers, of course. Happy dreams in the midst of sad reality. It was a very strange feeling to be away from the classroom and the children.
Laura (Teaching Resident) finally got the chance to run the class on her own - and this she did beautifully, I have no doubt. I know that our main focus of the week was to create hero capes - the final endeavor of this creative exploration. She delighted me with photos of the children on parade, on the last day of school before our spring break (this week!).
Thought these happy photos made for the perfect slice this first Tuesday in April.
Happy Spring Break!
