Clip to ScrapBook #2

When I first started teaching, I had a colleague who went from 4th to K. She stayed there for many years and loved it. She retired from the district at K.

I did some long term observation and subbing at K. It takes a lot of energy, patience, and good planning to be a K teacher. Their attention span is so much shorter than 4th. You are building the base upon which all else is built. Even though there is no standardized testing, I think there is more pressure on th K teachers than anyone else. There is a special place in heaven for K teachers (and middle school teachers) in my opinion. I have all the respect for my K colleagues.
