There was a young girl called Ritu

Who knew just what she should do

She wanted to teach

Her goal she did reach

After making a stop or two!

At 7, my mind was made up. I wanted to be a teacher.

What a fantastic job, surrounded by kids, and paid to be with them!

I spent all my teenage years gearing up for this career, acting as a makeshift teacher/babysitter at all the family functions, and believe me, with the size of my family, there were plenty!

A Momma's View

It was a lovely surprise to get an email from Momma asking me if I’d like to write a guest post for her.

Who am I?

Sorry, how rude of me! My name is Ritu of But I Smile Anyway. I’m also a mum, in the UK, and also I’ve just started work as a Nursery Teacher. I like to write about all sorts, from recollections and reminiscences, to jokes and quotes, stories about my family, my thoughts on various issues, and all about my cat too!

Please have a mosey on over, and have a nose at my posts, and if you like, join my lovely followers!!

I had a think, and came up with something I hope you will enjoy reading!!!!
