It's that time...back to school! Tomorrow is my first day with my new fourth graders! I am excited to see them all. I thought I'd take a few minutes to share a couple things I am doing tomorrow. First, to introduce myself and help them get to know me, I created this poster called Meet Mrs. Geren. In the middle is a picture of me with my son. In the top left corner, I have pictures of my family. In the top right corner, I have a few things I like to do for fun: go to TN to visit family & friends, go to the zoo, and spend time with friends. Bottom left: Favorites...favorite football team (Go VOLS!), color, fast food, and snack. And the bottom right is my life in numbers: 4 is the number of years I have lived in SC. I am 401 miles away from home and I am 9,481 days old!
Two of my favorite books to read on the first day of school are First Day Jitters and The Teacher from the Black Lagoon. I still get jitters on my first day every year!
