Today the stars aligned and all the kiddos from one class were absent! Kids are gone all the time, but very rarely are all of them missing from the same class on the same day. And today was one of those days. I did a little prepping, a little cleaning just in case somebody showed up late. And once I knew nobody was coming I was outta there! I stuck my head in the office and said "Hey, nobody's here so I'm going to take a Starbucks break. Ok?" And my boss said "See you in an hour."
Look at that beautifully empty classroom
It was a hot sunny day, and I took a stroll through the market to the coffee shop. I sat in there and sipped my latte and enjoyed the peace and quiet while checking facebook, and I didn't have to tell anybody to sit down or raise their hand, and I didn't have to answer any questions, and it was glorious.
Let's hope it happens again tomorrow.
