st patrick's day

things i love about my job:

-i get to put my hand in paint to make leprechaun "footprints" around the classroom.

-i get to listen to first graders and kindergartners squeal with delight when they discover said footprints.

-as i walk down the hallways i am greeted by "guess what mrs. lipstick, you'll NEVER believe it- a leprechaun came to our classroom today!"

-first graders will totally buy any learning experience you throw at them if it has some small tie-in to the current holiday.

-i get to listen to children who proudly don't believe in santa claus search their classroom for leprechauns, because they know those little men are real.

-i get a kick out of watching little girls from south america, asia and india come to school in green shirts that say "everybody loves an irish girl"

who needs green beer when you've got 5, 6, and 7 year olds?
beer is WAY to weak to help a teacher recover from this day anyway.

I especially enjoyed hearing the accounts of leprachaun sitings. Some young 'uns swore up and down that they say the tiny fellow with their very own eyes.
