So here's the deal... The last few weeks have been quite hectic in Teacher Land! Why, you ask? Well, here in Canada we have had temperature drops (which = runny noses, sneezing, coughing and all that great stuff) and rainy weather (which can be better described in simple terms as indoor recesses, YIPPEEEE!!!) Now the little kiddies sure get affected by all this and thus in turn, so do we teachers! (Insert picture of teacher pulling her hair out here!) hehe!
Despite all that, (Yes, I still love my job!) I had the sweetest moment today with a darling student. It was one of those moments that make us think:"Wow, we have the most amazing jobs." It may seem frivolous or small to most people and the kiddies tell us wonderful things each day, however this really warmed my heart. I just had to share!!!
In the shuffle of our preparation for an outdoor recess (Hurrah!) this darling little girl took my hand and said: "Ms. Nicole I really love you." to which I responded "I love you too sweetheart." She then squeezed my hand and said: "Ms. Nicole I'm always going to love you, even when your not my teacher, even when I'm big, I'm going to love you forever." Now call me oversensitive, (they express their love for us each day!) but my eyes may have watered a little bit. The genuineness of her words and the actual love, were so sweet! DO WE HAVE THE BEST JOB OR WHAT?!?! I'm sure you all have moments like these and I think it's important to really embrace them, because teaching can be so difficult at times, and these instants are what make it all worth it!
It's no Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul material, but it sure made my day and I thought by sharing this with you it would possibly bring back some nice moments that you may have experienced!
Feel free to share some of your special times with the kiddies. I'd love to read all about them!
