I've heard that teachers are very forgiving and that super model boyfriends are allowed one slip before being kicked off the island. Have you heard that?

Brooke, being a teacher, if you're "with" a guy and he does something wrong, do you make him do it again? Does he have to show his work?

You're really too good of a person to have to put up with me.

Brookelina said...

JJ - am I mad at you for something? Remind me so I can properly punish you.

YNH - and again, you made me spill my coffee. Anyone who makes me laugh like you do is well worth putting up with.

Gordy said...

I will bring you an apple a day if you will let me be your pet.

Seriously though, lots of luck, those kids can be horrors!

darth said...

feet..ok..hands? wtf?

MoDigli said...

Brooke!!!!

When is the first day???!!! I know it comes in early August in Florida.

I remember how scared I was, too, the first year. And you know what, every year I always got the same "first day" anxieties that the kids got! LOL....
But it was always fantastic and wonderful. And it's gonna be fun! And if it isn't, then you are gonna make it FUN!

Yeah, Brooke!

You are gonna be SO GREAT!!!!
I only wish I could be there to see you ROCK those little munchkins' worlds! ;)

You Can't Afford Me said...

how fun. i'm getting so excited for lovie to go back to school. for some reason i love school supply shopping. i guess i love office supply stores in general (i have a pen and pencil facination - trying to find the perfect one).

anyway, hope you're having fun!

Evil Petting Zoo said...

what? how dare you leave? i would never do that. come back shane, come back!

The Moviequill said...

if I bring you a nice polished apple, what do I get, Teach?

Lo Lo Lova said...

Congratulations and best of luck to you, Brooke. You are already quite a teacher to all of us. Your students are lucky to have you!

Being a teacher has to be one of the hardest and most under-paid jobs out there. Bless you!

I wish you wonderful students, who are eager to learn! And I wish you wonderful memories you will hopefully share with all of us!!

berta said...

This is just so grown up of you. I am jealous, in that odd sort of you have such a respectful job sort of way.

Neil said...

If you get nervous, just imagine all the students naked.... uh, forget that. Not a good idea. Imagine me naked. Uh, not a good idea either. Let me go to the gym a couple of times and I'll get back to you. Imagine yourself naked. Woo hoo. Works for me.

gone said...

we will miss you! good luck with the preparation, i know you'll be an awesome teacher.

Egan said...

Good luck with teaching Brooke. I have the utmost respect for teachers. One of those professions that definitely deserves to make way more money than they do. I have contemplated teaching numerous times, but for some reason I shy away every time.

Have a great school year!

Anonymous said...

I can't believe the time has come! I am so proud of you!

Please keep me up to date on everything.

Melanie was here said...

Best wishes Brooke. Can't wait to hear all about it. I'm sure you mentioned this before, but what grade are you teaching?

Lushy said...

Good Mooorning, Ms. Brooke. Since I know I'm unable to keep my hands to myself, I'm just going to go put myself in timeout.

Hope you have great kids in your classes!

Übermilf said...

I've got it bad... got it bad... got it bad...

I'm hot for teacher!

Diedre said...

Hands to myself???? What? - that's no fun.

Brookelina said...

You all rock. I would thank you each individually but I'm so tired right now my eyes are crossed. So, kisses all around.

Also, the rules are two of five that the average primary teacher puts up in the classroom from the very first day. You all may be able to keep your hands and feet to yourself, but 34 six year olds can't!
(I'm team teaching - that's why so many kids)

Brian said...

and don't forget to floss regularly.

MoDigli said...

34 kids?!!!
Team teaching?!!

So, you're rotating with 6 yr olds?! wow! They're starting that rotation earlier and earlier!

Which areas will you be teaching this little team of students?

Übermilf said...

La la la (Ubie's fingers are in her ears) la la la (Ubie is ignoring Eldest's impending Kindergarten debut) La la la...

The Dummy said...

Hey Brookalina :) If your blog is any indication as to how fun you are, your students are gonna have a blast! I can already imagine them whispering to themselves "hey, she's really cool!" They'll be as scared and uncertain as you are those first few days. Sheesh, it sure brings back the memories. :)

Harley Quinn said...

And here I go bananas sometimes with just my 3!! You go girl! :)
Hugs..

Harley Quinn said...

good gawd....I just read my own post. I think i'm speaking pidgin without the accent (thanks mom). UGH....off to bed with me.

sunshine said...

Hey Brooke,
I would love to team teach sometime so I'll be real interested to hear more about it! Good luck! First grade sounds like fun!

TrueJerseyGirl said...

Good luck!!!

Kris said...

Wait, my teachers were never hot like this illustration.

Come to think of it, I like her outfit . . . Maybe I can Look for Less it . . . :)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Eddie said...

lol

Brookelina said...

Thanks all! Coming back to these comments means so much. I've been putting in 11 hour days and I can't remember the last time I was this f*cking tired. OY!! I need a massage!

MoDigli said...

where's the SMB with the hot oil when you need him? I'm sure he'll be arriving soon. Just soak in the tub til he arrives. :)

Brookelina said...

LOL! Can you read minds? I just got out of the tub!

Captain Beefheart said...

Mmmmm... naked schoolteacher.... schoolboy fantasy....

Or was that just me?

Girl With An Alibi said...

Good Luck Brooke!

I suspect you'll be inspiring many a childhood crush amongst the 6 year olds. I can just see it it 20 years from now. You run into a former student... "Oh Miss B! It's you! You're still as pretty as I remember. I had such a crush on you! By the way, I'm a UN embassador now and I just brokered a lasting peace in the Middle East. And I owe it all to those lessons in sharing and respecting others that you taught me. Thanks, Miss B! *hugs*"

Hey it could happen! The future is in good hands. ;-D

Nick said...

I'm wih Beefheart. Not in that way, though.

Ruben said...

It's hard keeping your hands to yourself. lol

Übermilf said...

Even your gym teacher? I bet their groins were stinky from wearing those polyester shorts.

Major7 said...

Was you day 11 hours today also?

MoDigli said...

SOOooooooo ........ How did Open House go on Friday???? .... Any cute stories from that to post this weekend?

im here somewhere said...

im sending my princess to preschool in three weeks and i cant stop balling. teachers will take good care of her right?

Major7 said...

Lil RDQ
Teachers will take care of your darling. Just be sure to do your part at home: read to them, help them with their homework, show that you care about what is going on in their life, make sure you monitor their online activity and then be sure to meet the boys parents. That should take tou all the way to her college days.

Brookelina said...

Beefy and Nick - sickos

GWA - and that is exactly why I'm doing this, cause it sure ain't the pay.

Ruben - of course it is!

Uber - ewwwww!

MoMo - it went really well. Over half of my class showed up. It's all a blur. I don't remember which parent went with which student. I'm a failure already! But I got my first hug from a student so it was all worth it.

Lilred - what major said!

Major - thanks!
