Teacher of the Year

Yes, that's me... I earned that nomination yesterday. (Yes, that is complete SARCASM.)  I think I sent home roughly 18 yellow cards yesterday.  Out of my class of 28 students, I had about 10 who were worthy of keeping their good behavior.  I was so frustrated with the behavior of my class from the moment I came back to work in Quarter 2, they just didn't get how to behave and yesterday was the tip of the iceberg.  I hate having to be mean, but come on! I mean what I say.  So yes, either I totally should hand back my nomination of teacher of the year.... OR... I completely deserve it for handling these 28 crazy, 6 and 7 year olds.  I don't know, but probably more so the first choice.

In my opinion, sending home 18 yellow cards definitely does not disqualify you from being teacher of the year! It shows that you are trying to be consistent, which is one of the qualities of a great teacher. Keep it up!! And congrats! That is definitely something to be proud of!!!

You are a great teacher! I have seen you work wonders with your students. All of the kids are a little weird right now! Don't worry!

I think sending home 18 students with yellow cards probably qualifies you for teacher of the year :) Congratulations! When will you find out?

I think any woman that takes on a class of 30 children deserves an award! I have 4 and somedays I have a hard time keeping them in line. I'd be fired before I ever had a chance to receive an award if I were a teacher.
