the day before the first day of Kindergarten...

Today I had a Kindergarten orientation where I met my students and their parents before our first day tomorrow. The word that came to me was EXPECTATION! I have 19 students this year and each one of them had different forms of showing their "expectation" to school. One student was excited as she is returning after being here last year, so in a way, she knows what to expect. A couple students were very shy and clung to their parents as they were not sure WHAT to expect. Some students were already testing the waters to find out what I "expected" out of them regarding sitting still and staying quiet during the opening assembly. A couple students stood in front of me "expecting" a greeting, a hug and a smile. And me? What did I expect? I received exactly what I expected. A room full of potential, a room full of anticipation and a knowing that this is my passion. Many little hearts are excited and expecting to have fun in school....and that is exactly what they will receive :)
