I'm a 6th year kindergarten teacher and a Momma to a precious baby boy, Nolan. Teaching is my passion and my hobby. Nolan is my heart and soul. I am blissfully married to the most wonderful man, Clay. We're also proud parents of our fur babies: Olive & Pickles (our cats) and Lola & Penelope (our guinea pigs). I love all things Dr. Seuss, office supplies, and color-coding, and blogging is one of my newer hobbies.
We took the kindergartners on a trip to the zoo this week, so naturally we were doing a writing piece about zoo animals. My TA, Laurie, was working with Amaya, who was trying to write "penguin" but had written an F in the word. Laurie asked the girl where she heard the F in penguin trying to get her to realize that there isn't one. Meanwhile, the student I was working with, Jake, said, "F in penguin?! Where's the F in penguin?! There's no F in penguin." Which sounded like, "Effin' penguin?! Where's the effin' penguin?! There's no effin' penguin."
