Checking In

Greetings!  No, I'm not dead, if anyone's wondering...  I've just been unbelievably busy!  I never knew 20 eight year olds could keep me hopping :). Honestly, I am loving third grade!  My students are great... we've had no behavior problems in 3 weeks... that's pretty good!  They are sweet, smart, and, for the most part, respectful.  Praise the Lord!  Pray that this continues to be the case!  

I have to share this one story:  During a prayer before lunch one day, I asked the Lord to help the kids do their best to listen and learn and for Him to help me be the best teacher possible. When I got finished, one boy raised his hand to ask a question.  He said, "Mrs. Brown, why did you pray that you'll be a good teacher?  You already are one!"  Isn't that sweet?  He's not one to throw away a compliment, so I was happy to see that I've "reached" him.  

I hope all of you out in the "blogging world" are doing well!  I have to admit, I haven't been reading blogs either... It's high time I catch up on what's going on in your lives.  I miss that! 

Have a great weekend!

It's wonderful to hear from you! I must admit, that I was getting a little worried about you! It had been quite a while since we've heard from you. Good to see you back!

Glad to hear that you are enjoying teaching! That was such a sweet compliment from that little boy! Awww!
