I love what I do, since I’m around children all day. They crack me up and warm my heart. Just the other day, one of the kindergartners said, “I speak chicken!” Then, he proceeded to “cluck, cluck, cluck”. This was out of the blue and they weren’t even learning about farm animals.
Also, just today, I was with a fifth grade boy who needed help on a project. I spent a little extra time with him, since my next student went home sick, and we were able to complete most of it. When I was getting up to go, he said, “If I get 100% on this, I’ll give you something.” I laughed and he continued, “I’ll give you a piece of candy.” How sweet and funny too. Just writing it brings a smile to my face. I love working with kids!
