(A true story.)
I am so nervous for my first year of teaching. I am sure all of my seminary lessons have prepared me, but still, it's scary. I just got my class list. I barely recognize any names, which is a good thing. I am very nervous to have Leah Gold, she knows me from the neighborhood. I hope she is not going to act up to prove it. And I wonder if Suri Weiderman is the sister of my old classmate- Esti Weiderman. That would be strange. And embarrassing. I hope she isn't.
This is so cute. I heard that my classmate Hadassah Abramson is teaching in Bais Rivka. Now my third grade sister has Morah Abramson. It's for sure Hadassa!
Suri is definitely Esti's sister. She looks like a little clone of Esti. I hope she doesn't say anything embarrassing about the class to her sister.
I hope third graders don't say anything embarrassing about their families to their Morahs. All I need is for a former classmate to hear all sorts of family secrets. Yikes.
Suri seems to like me, which is a good thing. I feel such a pressure to make a good impression on Esti. I feel like the whole world is going to hear about my performance as a teacher through Esti, via Suri.
Ouch! Oh my gosh what did I just do?? Ouch!! My hand!
"Ma!! Ow, my hand...help!"
"I don't know. Maybe you should call... Ow. It kills..."
"Thanks... I hope hatzalah gets here soon."
"Ouch, this hurts so much..."
"Ma... Ow... Maybe you should send the kids down to the- ouch- basement so they aren't in the way of the -ouch- hatzalah men."
"Thanks Ma. Yeah, it still kills."
They're here. I hate this. Why do they have to get my whole biography?? I AM IN SERIOUS PAIN!
What a pain. Suri didn't do her homework. It's so strange, she has always been so good about homework. I hope she has a good reason for not having her homework done.
"Why don't you have your homework done Suri?"
"It wasn't my fault Morah!"
"I left my book upstairs in the living room and I couldn't get it!"
"Why couldn't you get it?"
"Cuz a man came for my sister and my mother said we had to stay downstairs in the basement."
Oh, wow! Such exciting news!
"Ok Suri, you are excused for today. Make sure to make up the work."
I am so excited about this! As soon as I get home I better start spreading the news!
It's bad enough having a broken hand, I hope Suri didn't go telling her Morah that Hatzalah came.
