    You most definitely are a super teacher. The fact that you stayed out of the line of fire when the student threw up on the math book makes you a super, super teacher. In my case, the student missed the book and the trash and threw up on me. = )

    I don’t imagine teaching a muliple of grades is an easy thing to do, so Bravo to you! I think every teacher has a difficult time getting the children motivated after summer vacation, they forget how to focus. Your devotion comes through in your words, you will survive another year.
