Due to having spent last night sleeping on the bathroom floor with mystery stomach pain, I did not get to go into Little G's classroom today. However, my mother went and she confirmed what I already suspected, which is that the sub is basically Glenda the Good Witch in the form of a kindergarten teacher. The munchkins are listening, sitting still and even learning things.
I already knew she was an upgrade when I picked Little G up from school on Monday. I peeked into the room and saw twenty-six kids sitting quietly on the carpet with their coats and backpacks on in the midst of a spotlessly clean room. It was breathtaking. And then when I went to the door of the classroom this lovely woman cheerfully introduced herself to me (!) (how professional, how kind) (this never happened with the other teacher). Not only is the room tidy, but she has turned it into a real kindergarten with all sorts of cool stuff on the walls like safety signs, number charts and months of the year. She entertains them with stories of her five children who range in age from two to twenty. She is happy to be in the classroom teaching my kid. I am in love. I am scheming ways to keep her until June.
