That is exactly how I feel about my new job. Oh, it's alright. And when things get out of hand I just tell myself "It's not your classroom" Which it isn't. So........... I just manage what I can manage and let it go. Let it go. That's a struggle for me. Because I want it the way I want it.
Control issues anyone?
I guess it says something about me. I want the room to be tidy. I want the children to be trained that "this is how we do it" When you value something, you take care of it. So when I see toys cluttered and misplaced and nothing is returned to it's home I know they are not valuing it.
But like I said, "It's not my classroom".
In other news: there is a tropical storm about to hit Louisiana. Temperatures will drop and RAIN RAIN RAIN! I can't wait.
