An Amazing Teacher-Back 2 School

At the end of my Weight Watcher meeting,
I say to Mira (my BFF and doing WW with me)
"So we found out who Bradley has and his name is Mr. Killeen"
With a fast response she says
"I totally know who that is! I subbed for him once at a different school and when he came back, I saw him with his class. He is a GREAT teacher".

The next morning, we all get up and get ready.
Bradley decided to rock his hypnotizing shark shirt and I "influenced Calvin
to wear his "THE MAN" shirt + yellow pants.


How do I feel about backpacks?
I NEVER buy my boys backpacks with cartoon images
and I always stick to bright happy colors.

Just a fun little fact.
I found these at target and I love them.


We went to school early, so I could get some good pictures of the boys.

And when the bell rang, we went to check in.
I am really excited knowing that Bradley has a male teacher.
And yes, it was the same teacher my BFF was talking about.
It's almost as if the Lord knew I would lose it...if we didn't get an amazing teacher for Bradley.
He is super excited to teach and has a lot of fun stuff planned for the kids.

Calvin ALSO got an AMAZING teacher.
She is strict, which is what Calvin's personality totally needs.
She doesn't yet, but runs a TIGHT ship.
She is smart and amazing and I just love her.


After school was done I say
"On a scale of 1-10...1 being the worst and 10 being the best, how was your teacher?"

"Oh mommy, he is sooo fun and he said he doesn't believe in yelling at kids. He is a 10. No 2X10=20. 3X10=30!"

"Oh that is just what I wanted to hear!!! And you Calvin?"

"A 1!!!"

"Why are you giving your teacher a 1?"

"She kept saying ... "Calvin sit in your chair" and "Calvin do your work and stay in line!" She's so mean mommy!"


It was a great start to what I thought would be a disaster. I still think 4th grade is going to be really hard and we as parents will have to push Bradley to catch up :( but never the less, we know he can do it. So there it is. Our first day went well and I didn't stress eat!

Pin It!

The look on Calvin's face outside of school is comical! It made me chuckle. Glad they had a good first day. My baby headed off to kindy last week. Each day, he asked me to lock him in a closet and not send him. But, when I pick him up, he is all smiles. She is firm, but is such a hands on kind of teacher. Instead of bogging little ones down with a ton of worksheets, she finds alternative hands on ways to teach what they need to learn. As much as she can. I like that.
