Hi Kassy, what do you think about the new Common core curriculum with Kindergarten? Do you find it to be a lot more challenging? Where in Winston Salem do you live? I live down by the Village Tavern off Hanes Mall Blvd.

      Hey Kassy! Is it a far drive to East Bend Elementary? I live in Winston Salem also and I just remember the drive to Yadkin for a class. Isn't it exciting that you will be graduating in December? How... more
      • Commute - hobsonkd 127, Sun Jul 7 20:38
        Oh yes, the commute is not takes me about 30 minutes to get to school each day. The drive (to & from) usually gives me time to clear my head, so I don't mind it too much. I cannot wait to... more

      I have enormous respect for kindergarten teachers. I love 5-year-olds for about 60 minutes a day. I have no idea how you work with them 5-6 hrs a day! Winston-Salem is a wonderful place to live. I... more
      • Thanks! - hobsonkd, Sun Jul 7 13:34
        HA! Yes, five year olds have their difficult moments! They are lots of fun, though!
