Welcome to the Kingdom of Me

Today was the first day with all 20 of my darlings together. It was a MUCH longer day than the previous two! It is always such a delicate dance trying to convince them to be a team when most of them are the center of someone's universe. It doesn't seem like that good of a deal to them right now. But, there is so little room for the loner in the world. Mostly we need each know, sing along with me: People. People who need people, are the luckiest people in the world.
So, the dance begins. I will attempt to move them from the Kingdom of Me into the World of We with all manner of cajolery, encouragement and "mean teacher" looks! Keep me in your prayers....
Really, how much harder can it be to run an office, a multinational corporation or the country, for that matter???? I don't imagine anyone asks other "bosses" to show their lesson plans to anyone...
What do you think I should persue after retirement? Can't wait to hear!


  1. I think you already know my ideas for you after retirement. But I am really enjoying you at school this year, you are certainly helping us meet our 40 book challenge.

  2. I think I will just come in and team teach with you next year...or maybe we could open our own little school like hard could that be? Glad you can use the books...
