Talk about fast. One minute I was bringing in 2013 and next minute you know, it’s almost April! Spring is here and it is SO nice to see the sun and spend more time in the park. I have to tell you all that these past few weeks have been BUSY! The other day I volunteered in my daughter’s class and truly realized how tough it is to be a teacher and the children were absolute gems. The exhaustion comes from the constant ‘on’ game, answering questions, teaching and sharing information, responding to comments and thoughts, and the list goes on and on and on. I didn’t even realize I was tired until I came home zonked. Actually, with all the talking I did, my throat was gone.
Today’s post is dedicated to my kid’s teacher and to all the teachers out there who work so hard at what they do. Thank you for the knowledge you all impart to our wee ones. Good teachers make the biggest difference in a child’s life. This year, because of her teacher, she’s made bar graphs, pictographs, tally charts all on her own accord at home. She’s got a daily journal going (again, her idea) and she’s learned a ton about energy in her Science unit. She’s learned about humour and social responsibility and all of that wouldn’t be possible without a teacher who cares.
The world is a better place because of all those great teachers out there. It could be why the sun is beaming that much brighter 🙂
