It happened #SOL22

It wasn’t planned, but was completely spontaneous. I returned from delivering my students to recess at lunchtime today, handing them over to my Instructional Aide. I turned the corner and there they were. My three Kindergarten colleagues were walking towards me, lunch bags in hand.

“Where are you going?” I asked.

One of them replied, “To the Teacher’s Room.”

“No way. Are we really doing it?” I asked.

“Sure. Why not.”

“Woo hoo!” I squealed. “Wait for me!”

And off we went. Colleagues having lunch together, in the Teacher’s Room, for the first time in just over two years. We’re the first to give it a go, and it’s time.

Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.

  1. I can feel your excitement through your dialogue. What a great feeling it is to be with colleagues after all this time. We have a big commons area where we moved our lunchtime. Even with all of our restrictions lifted, we are still eating out there! I am not sure if we will ever change now.
