Gonna Be Another Mountain

Shef and I are stepping into this new territory where we're in the same grade.  Colleagues who have done it before have been glancing at me knowingly and saying things like, "How's it going, MOM?"

I mean, in the first two hours yesterday at 6th Grade Breakfast, it was going fine.

"How did I do?" I asked Shef later.  It was a pretty public day.  I had to go up to the podium, introduce myself in front of the whole grade and their parents, and call forth my advisees.

I thought of a good joke on my way up there and scored some appreciative giggles.  Sure enough, Shef said, "You were really funny."

Internal fist pump!

"So, I did okay?" I prodded.

"Yeah," he said.  "Everyone likes you."

Internal happy dance!

How long do you think I can keep this up?  Until I bust my first cheater?  Say, "Oh no, we don't do that in middle school," for the fiftieth time?  Pawn Magic the Gathering Club off on the new social studies teacher? I'll keep you posted.

This is neat. You and Shef together. Doing the sixth grade as a team.

I love this photo and I love the idea of you and Shef being in the same grade :-)
