One Room School House

One Room School House


Usually I can get by at school without a problem.  Sure we teach 8 lessons at a time, but there are usually two or three of us to teach making the impossible possible.  One day things felt doomed.

How did people do it in the olden days in one room school houses?  One teacher with so many levels… it just seemed like an impossible task without help. 

But this day I was in that situation.  My other teacher didn’t show up, and my volunteers were all sick.  I was alone.  Luckily my older students feel confident working on their own with the small directions I give them, which made things possible as I was able to have more time with the younger students who need more constant supervision. 

The day felt like the longest day of my life, but I survived my one room school house. 

Teaching at this school is giving me so many new experiences I never thought I would get….
