Hi all– Well, I’m pretty sure you all reading out there have been in school a good chunk of your younger lives. Some people like it more than others. But me, I loved school, so I stuck around to teach with 3rd and 4th graders every day. Here’s ten reasons why I think school is grand:
#1. Kids–Each one is original, interesting and fun in their own way.
#2. Books– We get to read lots of great ones together and individually.
#3. Learning– It’s a joy to see students master long division or write a fabulous sentence.
#4. Line up– Every morning my kids line up at 8:00. All those fresh faces & a new day.
#5. Art– We manage to squeeze a dose of “pretty” between all the math and grammar.
#6. Conversations– Walking in line, before school kids have a lot of things to say…
#7. Teachers– Love the people I work with, unselfish, kind, smart and just plain fun!
#8. Variety– Every day, every class is unique. Time flies (no clock watching here).
#9. Vacations– Have to be honest, I love by leisurely summers!
#10. Satisfaction– Love knowing my kids have grown through the year we spend together.
