I miss Viola Swamp October 30, 2009

One of many things I miss about being a classroom teacher is the week leading up to the Halloween party. My fourth grade colleagues and I would “transform” slowly over the week into the character Viola Swamp. It started with one fingernail being painted black. Then another. Perhaps the whole hand was the second day.  We would all swear up and down, backwards and forwards that we had no idea what had caused the black nails. Perhaps the water? Perhaps nuclear waste in the microwave?

    I miss being a classroom teacher, too. The good thing about being a librarian is that I am rarely a source of pain; I help the students instead of assigning things. Still, it was nice to be able to give a test or worksheet and occasionally sit down!
