Next Tuesday is The Goon Squad’s last day of preschool. Not their last day ever, but their last day in the two year old class.
As a parent of twins at a cooperative preschool, I have spent a lot of time in the classroom this year. Since there were 10 kids in their class I help out about every fifth school day. I completely expected that I would miss the teachers at the end of the year, but nobody told me how much I would miss the other kids in the class.
I know that some of the other kids will end up in Ian and Claudia’s class next year, but I’m sure all of them won’t. There are three different classes for three year olds and I’m not even all of the kids will even be staying at the school.
I guess I am going to have to actually start hosting playgroups. I’m so bad at that. Other moms have snacks and sometimes even parting gifts and their houses are clean. Hopefully the other moms like beer and doritos, and if the kids like goldfish and water we’ll be golden.
You know, even reasonable snacks and cleaning would be worth it. I am going to be devestated if I lose touch with these other eight children. How do all you teachers deal with this year after year?
