I start tomorrow!
Got a call today - everything is in order and I start tomorrow at 8 a.m.
I think most of tomorrow will probably be more paperwork, reading school materials/curriculum stuff, and observing the classroom. Kaia will be in her first real classroom setting and I'm a little nervous about how she'll do. She's got some issues (she's very afraid of public toilets, for example), so we'll see how it goes tomorrow. I'm packing some extra clothes in case she has an accident...usually it doesn't get to that point, but there's a good possibility that she'll at least be disruptive when she has to go.
I don't have any idea how the food siatuation works, either. I know the teachers eat with the children, but I am a VERY picky eater and am bringing something tomorrow (bringing something for Kaia, too) since there's a good chance that whatever they have, I won't like. And I wonder if I get an actual lunch-like break at all since we eat with the kids...so many questions! I guess I'll find out all of this tomorrow.
One other thing. There is a dress code. A weird one, if you ask me. You can wear either black or tan/beige pants (fine - that seems normal enough) and either red, white, or navy blue shirts. WTF? Sorry, but that just seemed odd to me. If they want to be that restrictive, they should just make us wear some sort of company shirt or something. And I would've liked to know the dress code sooner than 24 hours before I am supposed to work since I don't own any red, navy blue, or white shirts (I, of course, own white shirts...they're all either t-shirts with stuff on them or button-up blouses that would probably get ruined working with four-year olds all day long). So I had to go buy some new shirts today. UGH.
Wish me luck tomorrow!
