There was no shouting during gym time, and I was very glad not to have to deal with it. The kids seem to be getting more comfortable and are startingto interact with me more like they do with the other teachers, and that helps my state of mind a lot. They were good about giving me feedback about what was going on when I needed it and didn't give me too much. So I'm feeling quite a bit better about things.
I think this is going to be good for me as well as the kids. It's just going to take some getting used to for all of us.
