Have I mentioned that I love my job? The hard parts (budgets, discipline, paperwork) are easily set aside when a small person brings me a hand written note. There are times when I miss the day to day teaching, having a special connection with one group of children. But I spend a lot of time in the classrooms and do a monthly storytime with each class so in the end, I do get that connection. And, I get to work with parents too. This time of year I am hosting parent meetings to talk about development, what to expect in the next few months, and making decisions for the next school year. I have a deep desire to help parents listen to their hearts and their guts about their own child. It seems a bit counter cultural these days.
It looks like a wet and meeting filled week but I know there will be #tinytinymoments to bring a smile to my face. Happy Monday!
