I had a little boy from one of the other 1st grade sections come over and hug me at the beginning of recess duty. I hardly know this kid's name, but I pushed him on the swing once at recess and apparently we are bros now.

I really liked working in elementary schools. Those kids are just fun.

How many kids are in your section? I'm in higher ed and I know we have multiple teachers and educators here and I find it really interesting that we cover a really big span of the US education system among all of us.

I went over to this girl who was using the swing the wrong way and told her to fix it. Then she was like "you don't sound like that". I said, "I do today". Then she asked why and I told her that I'm losing my voice (worst thing to happen to a teacher by the way). Then she said, "ok". Then I started walking off but she then started telling me about her birthday that is coming in a week and a half.

Today one of my students came in and gave me a tulip petal.

One of my students that I've known for almost three years now thinks my name is Josh and that's how he greets me every day. His good friend, who I see more often, calls me "Jon Jon" and I think that's acceptable. Another one that started this year thinks that my last name is my first name. I don't have the heart to correct either of them.

A good handful of my students think my last name is my first name, but I think this is because my last name is very valid as a first name.

EDIT: I prefer the students call me by my first name because anything else sounds absurd to me. I've gone as far as saying "You can call me Jon. Mr. [Last Name] is my father."

Some kids trying to suck up via email will call me Mr. [Last Name] or on the extremely rare occasion, Dr. [Last Name.] Luckily for them, flattery will usually get them everywhere. Unless, you know, it's actually outside my power to do something.

The IT guy here sometimes calls me "Mr. Arfer", and I've told him that if he wants to use a prefix it really ought to be "Dr. Arfer", but then he sasses me about helping him with an ache in his elbow.

So we have no school today because we had conferences till 8 two nights. I being myself don't sleep in (partially because my boyfriend worked at 6 and that woke me up but also because my life is waking up at like 5 anyway) and I'm actually having an awesome time. It's mostly due to the fact that I needed to find writing prompts for next week and I found one I love. I made a model for the students that has me really excited guys:

Also through this process I found out that I can draw things, take a screen shot of them, import them into Pigment, and use it as a coloring page guys! The line detection stuff even works!
Also I got all of my student teaching assignments done for my college and just have to upload them now, but I'm mostly excited about my model and how my kids will react.
