I was back at my old stomping grounds, filling in for a Grade 2 Teacher today; being on leave allows me to supply teach up to a certain number of days, and I've availed myself of this opportunity already before we head off to Argentina next week, teaching Grade 7 on Tuesday and now Grade 2, today.
It was a bit odd to be back at the school and not in my own classroom. But the novelty was soon overcome with the busy-ness of the class I was covering, and the day whizzed by.
We read together, looked at some treasures I had brought from the beach in PEI, made some patterns in math, sang a song, and wrote a letter to the primary teacher.
I was pleased to have the opportunity to chat with some colleagues from last year, and I enjoyed working with the students. But spending the day here confirmed for me how much I want to return to my Intermediate roots if possible, once I go back to a classroom full time.
