Last year. It is it's own sentence.
Last year I learned about every possible thing that can go wrong. It was like extreme testing on all of my procedures. I found every possible loop hole or rather my cherubs did. This year I was ready for a BIG challenge like last year.
So far, though, my students are really good. I have to step back and realize that they are not looking for the loop hole. I have started out everything with such tight procedures and specific rules, but I am going to have to adapt for *gasp* well-behaved children.
I think I will have a lot more freedom to do different things with this group. I don't care what anyone says, it makes a huge difference having teachable kids. It just does.
