This past week was my first week with no other adult in the classroom... just me. Yippeee.... yaaa-no. My goodness was it crazy! Anyways, I shall have more stories up soon but here is something I'd like to share with you. The firefighters came on Friday to tell the kids how to best behave when there is a fire at their house or anywhere. My kids, as well as I (duh), were eyeing the fire fighter suit that they had behind them while the presentation was going on. When they brought it out, my kids were wishing they could try it on. I, myself, had always wanted to know what it felt like to be in such a big heavy suit, ever since I was their age so I was just like them, sitting up and trying to get a better look at it.
As the firemen were about to try it on, they pointed to the principle to come and see if he'd like to try it. He was really enthusiastic throughout the talk. He stopped, dropped, and rolled on the hard gym floor for the kids when the fireman told them what to do if they were on fire. Throughout my student teaching experience, I've noticed Mr. C's dedication to the elementary schoolers and his interest on how to best educate them. He has also been a very great guy in taking care of the teachers and employees at the school. Anyways, while he was trying on the suit, he couldn't fit into the boots. So guess what?
The firemen pointed to me!!! I was so confused at first because I had no idea what was going on. Did they need help getting the suit on him? Were one of my kids doing someone wrong that I needed to discipline? Anyways, I went up there and I got to try the fireman's suit on... ME! That was so much FUN!
I was so proud!
