It feels like a Monday...

It's a Tuesday. We're in the middle of third quarter. Aka. "The third quarter slump." Kids don't want to be at school. Many teachers don't want to be at school. 

But there are a few things that keep me coming back day after day. 

1. The kids--> the conversations we have in class. They're real with me. They're comfortable enough to ask me questions and have some pretty tough conversations. Today's was about college and advantages to college and why to save money for tuition instead of only taking out loans (like me).

2. The kids' parents--> We just got done with parent teacher conferences last week. And I was constantly reminded of how truly grateful I am to have some of these students in my classes. I told their parents too. They deserve a gold star for raising some dang good kids. 

3. The kids--> I sold admission tickets to the basketball game tonight. The boys kept asking if I was going to come to the game on Thursday. They notice if I'm there or not. They care. 


That's what it comes down to.

They care about me. 

And I care about them. 





The End. 

Good night!

  1. The kids are what make teaching worthwhile! Sometimes you want to just leave them, but you always end up taking them!

    PS- Why did you and Lyndsey and I not take a picture together this weekend? *Blogger fail*
