Giving Thanks For Teachers!

G'day lovely friends! Thanks so much for visiting me here at Natasha in Oz, my bloggy home, Down Under.

This has been a crazy week and I am so glad it is Friday! I have been marking papers, finalizing results, teaching classes and doing all of the other things that all teachers are expected to do.....I am so thankful that I am only working part-time for one term!

That is why I want to spend some time giving thanks for all teachers.

I am also thankful that I was not a teacher back in 1915! Look at this list of Rules of Conduct for teachers that I found on Little House on the Prairie.com

Imagine having to wear two petticoats and not being able to go to the ice cream parlor on a hot summer's day! I really should stop complaining about having a busy week after reading this!

Anyway, I have only got one week left of my contract and then life will be back to normal again. It has been wonderful working part-time at my kid's school for the term but I am ready to finish so that I can dedicate my time to my husband, my kids, my family, my home, decorating for the Holidays and, of course, to my blogs!

  15. It is so nice to hear from you. The worst part about the whole room cleaning episode was that I only got about 25% done and had to stop to go visit my daughter and now his room looks even worse. But he is helping his dad dig trenches in the back yard. Most of the time I am not real picky about his room, its a phase but I think it has evolved into a fire hazard.
    So how are things down under? It is just starting to cool off here so I guess you guys are starting to warm up.
    Happy Blogivesary! I am going to take more than five minutes and catch up on your blog.
