Ruler of my room and all within it

My first day

Substituting at the public school, despite some earlier concerns, went pretty well. Frankly, though, I think I'm better suited to older students (3-5). I think their language acquisition and such just makes it easier for me to talk to them, and vice-versa. (I tried to pick a book I thought would be appropriate and it turns out it was way over their heads, for instance.)

Best moment of the day: a couple of the 4th graders whose class I've been helping out in spotted me through the window at the end of the day and poked their heads in.

"You're in kindergarten? How come?"

"Well, their teacher was out sick, so they called me."

(Disgusted groan) "How come you never teach OUR CLASS?"

Aww. Give it time, kid. I'm sure your teacher's just about ready for a much needed day off.
