Have I already said the first few weeks of school are chaotic? I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that here lately on the blog. If you’re a first year teacher, hang on tight. These next few weeks will fly by, but will be pretty stressful. As a former teacher, I know the headaches that come with the first few weeks of school. They are very rewarding weeks, but can put a lot of strain on our teachers. But I know I can do something about it and make it a little more bearable for those hard working teachers.
Dinner Is On Us!
Most people work a forty hour work week. Teachers only wish they worked a forty hour work week, unfortunately. Most years, I would pull sixty to seventy hour work weeks for the first few weeks. I was sleep deprived, tired and stressed. I enjoyed getting to know my kids, but a classroom full of new kindergartners could wear anyone out! There were many nights where I would come in the house and go straight to bed without dinner. Some nights I would pick up food and take it back to my classroom. My life centered around that classroom for weeks.
I can’t help but have empathy for my kids’ teachers. They work so hard to make a great start to a school year. So, if I can do anything to make their first week or two easier, I’ll do anything. I’ve never had a teacher dislike this simple gift.
