Tomorrow we are taking the students on a field trip. We are going to go see the play The Emperors New Clothes.
I HATE going on field trips! I hate organizing the kids and parents. I hate collecting money and permission slips. I hate trying to round up parents to go on the trip. I hate riding the awful, bumpy, noisy, yellow school bus.
Now I know all of the benefits of a field trip. I know that field trips are especially beneficial for my students because they are given an opportunity that they may not get anywhere else.
I guess that the real problem is that I don't like being responsible for 20 little bodies. SO much can go wrong. I don't like that burden on my shoulders.
Wish me luck. :-)
