Friday's are the day we usually wear our school t-shirts or better yet, your own classroom t-shirt. I have at least 15 shirts that bear my school's logo, we're the Leo B. Hart Hawks, and another pile of my own classroom's t-shirts.
In the very beginning, back when I was teaching kindergarten, we were Sweaney's Sweeties. When I moved to 6th grade, we were Sweaney's Scorpions. For the past 15 years though, we've been Sweaney's Stallions. That's been the best fit. Obviously.
I've changed my shirts several times over the years. For a while, they were navy blue and sported a much more cartoon-like image of a horse. This is the first year for this shirt, and I really love it.
Each teacher chooses his or her own logo and mascot. I don't know why it took me so long to embrace my roots. The kids liked being Scorpions, but I always wanted an equine motif. When I changed schools and moved to a 4th grade classroom, I made the switch to Stallions and haven't looked back.
Until I retire, we're Sweaney's stallions. TGIF and enjoy your weekend!
