It feels like a Monday...

It's a Tuesday. We're in the middle of third quarter. Aka. "The third quarter slump." Kids don't want to be at school. Many teachers don't want to be at school. 

But there are a few things that keep me coming back day after day. 

1. The kids--> the conversations we have in class. They're real with me. They're comfortable enough to ask me questions and have some pretty tough conversations. Today's was about college and advantages to college and why to save money for tuition instead of only taking out loans (like me).

2. The kids' parents--> We just got done with parent teacher conferences last week. And I was constantly reminded of how truly grateful I am to have some of these students in my classes. I told their parents too. They deserve a gold star for raising some dang good kids. 

3. The kids--> I sold admission tickets to the basketball game tonight. The boys kept asking if I was going to come to the game on Thursday. They notice if I'm there or not. They care. 


That's what it comes down to.

They care about me. 

And I care about them. 





The End. 

Good night!

Yipes! It's been a while...

I was just looking at my last post and I realize it's been a while...a little too while. School is back in full swing with the kiddos doing lots of hard work and helping others around them.

Last week we had a diaper drive for our secretary. She had twins about a month ago, plus she has a 3 year old! She'll be busy! So one of our school organizations decided to sponsor a diaper drive. Basically, the students (and teachers) bring in diapers to donate to the sweet little bebes and their momma. As we bring in diapers (or money...20 cents per diaper) there are prizes awarded. The first prize to win is a school wide movie before our long weekend. The next few tiers include different staff members who will be 1. dying their hair or 2. shaving their heads. If we made it to 4,500 diapers the superintendent said he'd shave his head.

Well, we made 4,500 by Thursday...so one of my juniors came to me. He said, "Mrs. Entzel, if we make it to 5,500 diapers by tomorrow, would you be willing to color your hair? Please?" And with a smile, it was impossible to say no.

So tomorrow, 1st hour, I will be getting my hair colored (a temp color!) pink or purple! Yipes! Pictures will follow. Tomorrow is also 10 on 10...so get ready!

Good night, homies.
