Confessions of a Fauf

First Week

So Fauf's new life has begun: teaching art! And I must say, it is Fauf's dream job. This week I've been teaching how to mix colors using watercolor paints. For the most part, the classes have been well-managed and very engaged and loving their new art teacher :) There was one class that was obnoxious, but that's okay...I only have them for 45 minutes a week! However, my feet sure hurt from standing on them all day straight, and from having to get used to wearing shoes again--I've been wearing flipflops all summer! I get to work with all grades sometime during the week, which is fun, but tricky since I have to remember the age group and how to talk to them. Let me just say that 6th graders kinda smell, and 1st graders are ridiculously cute. 5th graders are nice, 4th graders are unpredictable, and 2nd and 3rd graders are predictable. How fun! So in conclusion, Fauf must confess that her life is pretty great right now....

How lucky those kids are to have you. Rest and soak those feet and wear ridiculously comfortable shoes
or even sandals-you ARE a bohemian and edgy art teacher! .... Be scandalous, if it makes you feel better.
Congratulations on the successful start!

You are such a fantastic teacher! I loved being able to see you teach my class yesterday! Also with this blog in mind "obnoxious" is an excellent Scrabble word, I believe you could build it off of the word "nox" if that is indeed a word.
