It’s The Little Things…

It has been nearly a year since this classful of kids and I started our journey together, and things have been good at times, and really rough at others.

They still aren’t easy, by any means, but I am pretty proud to think I have nearly managed my first academic year, with a pretty hard bunch of children… A baptism of fire, it has definitely been!

But it truly is the little things… nearly 9 months ago, I had a particular child who was REALLY hard to deal with. He spat, kicked, bit me, and swore (at 3 years of age). I remember writing about him here.

This week, however, for the 3 days he came in, he ran into the classroom and gave me a flower! Ok, they were dandelions and weeds, but still… how sweet!

Here they are, drying!

I seem to have a habit of picking up little friends in my classes!

Then there are other ‘little things’ I’d rather not have to worry about, from school…

No, I don’t have them, thank God, (I got my mother in law to check me like a monkey chimp being nitpicked by its mother!) but a lovely little girl in my class has them, and she is another one who seems to have an affection for me, and she is always cuddling up close to me!

Not quite the gift I would cherish, so I have taken preventative measures!!!!

Teaching is such fun!

    Oh, is that sweet! But I am not surprised at all, Sis! You are such a lovely person and your job is your passion. The kids feel that 💖

    Do you find that the closer to break it gets the more difficult it is to keep the class focused? I love Dandelions! There is almost nothing sweeter than a smiling little one bringing you a fistful. I don’t believe in weeds.

    A wise person once told me, ya just gotta take the good with the bad, and it sounds to me like you get your fair share of both!
