Some days this job is a lot of work. Some afternoons I leave needing silence for at least an hour, a dark room, a nap, chocolate, & a good cry. But then there are days where I leave feeling so proud, excited, encouraged, motivated, & joyful. The good days outweigh the bad, well not “bad”... the stressful. You know what I mean. The laughs, excitement, growth & improvement make even the worst days seem to disappear. .
The most important thing that I try to teach my students is to be kind... like the Little Blue Truck. This story reminds me to not be in such a rush, to be EXTRA patient and EXTRA kind. Somedays these little reminders come funny ways. - 9 minutes ago
