Teaching can be confusing at times. There are days where you absolutely love teaching and there are days you wonder why you chose to do it. However, the days that you love your students, enjoy watching them learn, and feel like you are actually impacting them are worth every challenge and stress. It is the most demanding job in the world and I don’t think I would want to do anything else. I love it…I love my 5 and 6 year olds and how new the world is to them. I love teaching them how to hold a pencil for the first time, which letter makes which sound, and how to actually use your fingers for counting. It is amazing to think that I’m the one responsible for them knowing all of those things. My teaching is foundational for their entire educational experience. Even though there are deep responsibilities and challenges, God sends me kindergarteners to make me laugh, gross me out, and make me postpone motherhood a few more years. My life is completely different than most because I get to experience something new everyday.
I bet you've never:
1. had a booger wiped on your arm
2. heard your name over 100 times in one day
3. had the diamond on your wedding band sucked on by a child
4. tied the same shoelace 9 times in one day
5. heard your name be pronounced Mrs. Shitmer
6. been asked where a baby comes out
More kindergarten stories to come…..
