I survived Open House... fact it went extremely well. Teaching is my gift and I am top notch when it comes to teachers!
I work hard at what I do, but much of it comes naturally. So enough of my let me show you a darling note I received from a parent this morning by email. All names have been changed to protect their innocence!!!!!

Hi Mrs. Magillacutty!

I just wanted to thank you for the great open house and to let you know how much Vincent is enjoying first grade so far. He came home today and told me that you’d taught him how to differentiate his “b’s” from his “d’s” -- “The ‘d’ has a big behind and the ‘b’ has a big belly.” And then he told me he likes to draw a dot inside his b’s sometimes for a belly button. Ha! (He also told me last week when I asked about a question he’d gotten incorrect that he’d tried to do the worksheet with his eyes closed — something I strongly discouraged him from trying again ;-)

I also wanted you to know that I really regret not being able to Dividend — I did last year when I was pregnant with baby #4 but now that she’s here and I’m back to work I just can’t swing it. Maybe by the time baby #4 starts 1st grade I’ll be able to pick it back up again!!

Thanks for everything you do and hope you have a great rest of the week,
Mama of 4

Okay, so maybe it WASN'T my finest hour as a teacher...BUT THAT CRACKED ME UP!!!!
