Funny 1st Day Story

We had an all-school assembly before classes started on the first day of school yesterday. Tons of hugs were given and received between returning students and teachers. Before I continue, in my defense, I just want to say at the outset that I got my fair share of hugs. I'm just saying.

At one point, I see one of my former students (I've had her for 3 classes so far, and another this year), starts running towards me with her arms outstretched and a big smile on her face. So, I smile back and open my arms ..... just as she runs past me to greet another teacher.

As she passes me and sees me waiting, she hesitates slightly ONLY slightly as if to say, "oh, awkward", and then continues to go for the OTHER teacher hug.


  1. Thank you for posting a blog! I teach the same subjects as you as well as Algebra 1 so I'm always on the lookout for new ideas for my small classroom. Your day 1 activities look great - your geometry activity is similar to what I use. Do you do any journaling in your classes? I'm just starting this year with it.

  2. Its great to make some art work while studying the maths and geometry etc. with good mathematics skills we can crack many exams related to ca final coaching in Delhi & more.
