Back to School!

It has a whole new meaning for me this year.  You see, I've signed up to be a substitute

I've missed being a teacher!

I have taught children's classes in church since I was a teenager, starting with a Beginners' Sunday School class.  I've also taught classes for Missionettes, Rainbows and helped with Royal Rangers.  I've shared the job of co-youth director with my hubby at two different churches.  I've played piano for children's choirs. I was a volunteer 4-H Club leader for eight years.  I homeschooled my own children for sixteen years.  And I currently teach Children's Church. 
I love kids!

Who knows how long it will be before I get called into the classroom?  But, while I wait for that first phone call, I'll be trying to get my ducks in a row. 

I want to have my morning routines down to just minutes in case I get a last-minute phone call from the school (which just happens to be at the end of my country lane).
I hope to get my hair trimmed, so I can wash, dry, and run.
I'm putting together a very simple wardrobe of clothes that mix and match. 
I've written a list of easy-to-fix meals and am off to the grocery store for the fixin's this morning.

I would love advice/ideas from any of you that are/were teachers or substitutes!


  1. Oh, how WONDERFUL that you teach, Sherry!! Teachers are sometimes Mothers unawares, eh ;)
    Warm hug,

  2. What age group?
    I am glad my teaching days are over but they were enjoyable. I went from running a playgroup and ended with mentoring behaviourally challenged primary school age boys.
    They werent the only ones being challenged!
    I am sure you will enjoy yourself, you are obviously well qualified!

  3. How exciting! I hope you get a call soon:@)

  4. Sounds like you have a handle on getting out of the house together and ready to share your love of teaching and being with children!

  5. You never cease to amaze me Miss Sherry from Alabama ; )
    If anybody can be organized, it's you my friend.
    Hope the phone rings off the hook.


I'm so happy you're leaving me a comment! ~ Sherry
