Positivity in Teaching

Positivity in Teaching

After Monday’s events in Boston, I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting this week.  And a lot of thinking about teaching.  Of course, I love it.  But just like any other job, sometimes we teachers get a little spring fever!  During these times, I just need a little pick-me-up.  A small sign showing me the career I chose over 15 years ago was the right one.

Let’s just say, I got exactly what I asked for.

and Page 2!

Yes everyone, this was written by one of our Kindergarten students this week.  We are teaching Persuasive Writing (yup, to 5 and 6-year-olds) and this little one wrote quite the convincing letter.  She is exceptionally bright.  But even more, she shows the true spirit of a little girl trying to get her teacher  drive to the nearest Animal Shelter as soon as she leaves the door!

I’m convinced.  Are you?

xo,

Cynthia
