Working this week had me in my usual school of late, but with a twist. I have been taking a lot of third grade, but today for the first time, I worked the fourth grade.
It has been sad due to the shootings in Florida.They have been having lock down practice for a few years, but yesterday, I participated in a lock down practice and in the darkness and quiet of the classroom, it was sad to see the students with their hands in their faces. I don’t know if the shootings were covered in the classroom, but the drill was taken with a lot more of intensity.
Sure, there were other moments too: I worked with students one on one and that was quite rewarding.As the classes were third and fourth grade, I had a few chuckles with the classes also, but to help a few of the class that were struggling always leaves me with a good feeling.
It is quite good to be back in action.
