I grew up a fan of the niners. Some of my favorite childhood memories are watching Joe Montana help us win Super Bowls. I’m so excited for today. I woke up before 6 am on a Sunday. It’s like it is Christmas or something.
I normally don’t mention my niners obsession on here but with the TPT sale happening today my two loves are colliding: teaching and niners.
I’m so excited.
Our school has Spirit Days once a month. The student counsel chooses a theme like pajama day and they go around and count the number of participants in each class. Last Friday was Sports day. My class won a trophy for our number of participants. I think one of the reasons that we won was that my students know I’m a niners fan. Being in the bay area, we have two NFL football teams which leads to a bit of a rivalry. A few kids have announced this year that they are Raiders fans and I playfully smile and say, “I’m sorry.” On Sports day, I had every child show up in some sort of sports gear and our niners fans and raiders fans were polite to each other. I’m happy that I could model that you can have a difference of opinion, and joke around about it while still being respectful.
I have to share one of my favorite moments of Sports Day. I was walking past the lunch line wearing my niners jersey and one of my students from last year (now a third grader) was excited to see that I was wearing niners colors like he was. He asked, “Mrs. Hutchens, you go for the niners?” I smiled and modeled the correct words, “Yes. I root for the niners. I’m a niners’ fan.” His eyes got really big, “Does Mr. Hutchens go for the niners too?!?!” “Yes. He is a big niners’ fan.” He said, “Yes!!” while pulling his fist from the air. (Is there a name for that gesture?) He started jumping up and down and telling all the kids in line with him that “Mr. Hutchens goes for the niners, too!” So, cute.
Well, this niners’ fan is ready for a fun day. I’m excited to watch the Super Bowl and I’ve already started hearing some cha-chings from my TPT app which means some people are taking advantage of the sale to get some things in their wish list. My dream for today is to hear a cha-ching while the niners get a touchdown. That would be amazing.
