I'm very new to this blogging business but I must say I am thoroughly enjoying it...and enjoying reading others in similar sticky spots and situations.....and as awful as it is, it's nice to know you aren't alone. It's nice to read about success in the face of failure too. Gives me some sign that there is hope. I signed up for ICLW to make sure I am actually commenting, not just reading the bazillion blogs out there.
So if you are here...welcome to my blog! I am getting closer to my 2nd IVF in June. I am a Kindergarten teacher and it makes most sense for me (physically and emotionally) to wait for school to be over.
Here are three reasons why I love teaching Kindergarten:
1. Some of my kiddos lean on me when I help them. ...lean their heads on my arm. Love it that they aren't afraid to be loving.
2. If you ever need a confidence boost come to a kindergarten classroom. I have one student who asks me several times a week to "guess" who the best teacher in the world is....can you guess who?? (It's me btw..) They love everything about you. Seriously. Your socks, shirt, shoes, earring, necklace, sticker on your shirt...you name it! And they tell you! (They will also tell you that you have a big fat zit on your face--this has happened..thank you Luke...)
3. I love the learning that takes place in the short time I am with them...simply amazing what their little brains soak up!! I especially love the writing! See below... (try to read his ear spelling [aka phonetic writing])
Here is the number one reason which leads me to want to rip out all my hair and sometimes really, really dislike my job: PARENTS.
not all parents mind you. Ironic that I want to be one....a good one of course. It's not to say that I have "bad" parents....just parents who have picked up on some bad habits....and need a slap across the head because they are not doing their child any favor! (take a breath...done with mini rant). Not that I won't make fantastic mistakes but I hope that after all my time around kids and parents I will pick up on some good habits and role models.
Good night! I hope to connect with more of you!
