    for all your stories-soooo glad to know those children survived unscathed! They did bring up issues I had considered as well-such as what to call me. Since it is kindergarten I'm not going to insist on Mrs L_____ , I just don't think it's a big issue at this stage.

    I've also been wording up my husband so he knows he'll have to be the one to listen to reading and help with homework. I'm sure my son doesn't want or need me to be in teacher mode at home too. That's going to be something I'll have to work at too. It really will have to be a case of 'what happens at school stays at school", especially in terms of behaviour.

    cheri, historyrocks and Janice RZ-favoritism, perceived or otherwise is something I am really conscious of too. When it comes to class jobs, etc I'm just going to go alphabetically. I'll also try to keep track of any special privileges and spread them evenly.

    Thanks hmccourtie-I have discussed with the other kindergarten teachers blending some of our literacy and maths groups so that he doesn't have me all day.

    I remember reading somewhere that teachers' children have to work twice as hard to be seen as half as good and I'm sure there's some truth in that. I will have to try to have realistic expectations.

    We have an older daughter too so I have arranged with her to do 'girly' things together on the weekend-just the two of us-so she doesn't feel she's missing out on anything.

    Is there anything else I should be thinking about? Great posts so far!
