I'm going to participate in the daily writing journey during March. This will be my first time. I so enjoy reading the stories written by others. It will be a great challenge for me, but here goes.
The first day of March certainly arrived like a lion. My day began early because I was scheduled to visit elementary teachers at a school an hour away. When I went outside to load the car, it was covered with lots of wet snow. The temperature was above freezing so the roads were clear. I cleaned the snow from my car and headed south.
When I arrived at the school, I rang the buzzer to be invited in. That is a new procedure for 2013. The door to each classroom was also locked. I felt safe and the students seemed accustomed to having the door locked. Each classroom that I visited was a reflection of the teacher. The rooms were decorated in themes, selected by the teacher. A few themes I saw include a frog, ladybug, monkey and bee. The bulletin boards were filled student art work. The atmosphere was a good learning environment. Students and teachers were polite and respectful. I felt welcomed into each classroom. I witnessed positive interactions throughout my visit.
The teachers listened to my comments and shared some of the issues they were experiencing. The day was a successful one for me, I always learn so much when I go to school.
Here's to hoping March goes out like a lamb.
