Hey NTI Team!!!
Well I can say there are many things that gives me the “unexpectedly happy” feeling. At Riverdale High I can say it is safe to say that there is no day like the previous. My students have such awesome personalities. Well The good feeling day for me came a few days ago. I recently had my evaluation with Mr. Chandler. Leading up to the evaluation date, I was sooooooo nervous! Oh geesh I was so nervous. I couldn’t sleep, eat, think, etc. I was praying that my sweet babies be on their “BEST” behavior. Well, the day before the evaluation came and I informed my students that we were having a guest and I expect them to act accordingly. The looked at me like, “yeah, sure, whatever Ms. Kimble.” I looked back at them like, “I’m not playing with you guys.” Almost like one of those looks your mom or grandma give you when you are acting up in church. Lol. Well needless to say, the day of the evaluation came and I was still sweating golf ball sixe sweat balls under my arms (I have really bad nerves). Mr. Chandler came in the class before my students arrived. I was standing outside my door greeting them looking at them like, “get in there, sit down, and close your mouth.” The bell rang, I went inside the classroom, and the games began! We had class and they acted like they were in church (perfect surprisingly). I almost didn’t recognize them. I said to myself… Wait… Whaaat… Yes… Awesome! I was so proud of their behavior that day. I felt bad because I didn’t have any faith in them and I just knew they would act out. I was sooooooo happy and elated! I gave them praise for their positive behavior and asked if they could act like that every day. However, I think that was asking too much of them, buuuuut, I’m going to keep trying.
