This November I am participating in the #ReflectiveTeacher November Blogging Challenge. I hope you enjoy these posts!
I really had to think on this one – it had me stumped! There are so many ‘best parts’ of teaching kids, which is why I love to do what I get to do!
But the very BEST part?
I get to experience the joy of making a positive difference in a child’s life. Whether it’s helping a pre-teen girl discover that Math and Geography are very cool subjects to learn, or giving a hug and a silly bandaid to a small boy who’s fallen and cut his knee. Whether it’s helping disengaged boredom turn into a moment of awe and excitement for a child watching a monarch wriggle out of its skin and turn into a chrysalis, or simply sharing uproarious laughter with my students at some hilarious mistake I’ve made in class.
It’s the little things, moment to moment, that fill my soul with a lifetime of gladness that I get to teach.
I touch the future. I teach.
Every day I get to put smiles in children’s hearts and minds.
