G is for Guarantee.
As we know there are not a lot of
them in this world.
But we are going to talk positively
Yes, my "kids" deal with lots of obstacles
in their lifetime but for the most part are
not aware of any of them. Which is good.
Their parents on the other hand get to do
the dealing with those obstacles.
Now back to our word---at school we guar-
antee that we will guide, cheer, redirect,
provide as much help they may need and
love our kids. Not all days go this way but
we try very hard at it.
Our "kids" will continue to deal with
obstacles as they grow and we hope that
as they move from elementary school to
middle school they continue to have
people around them to do what we have
done for them.
H is for Heart
To teach one must have heart.
The heart to deal with the good, the
bad and the ugly.
A good day is when everyone is happy,
things get done and no one has a melt-
down (kids or adults.) Adult ones
happen when the kids are out of the
room. All staff are in attendance.
A bad day involves those meltdowns,
non compliance, two or more staff are
gone, things don't get done and we
have to stay inside for recess!
An ugly day involves two or more sick
kids and or staff, runny snotty noses,
and barking coughs, kids screaming
and tantrums being thrown, more
meltdowns and these are the days that
the staff would like to run away from.
Thankfully these are few and far
Often we ask ourselves:
"What am I doing here?"
"Am I making a difference?"
"Maybe I should change careers?"
But we wake up the next morning
and do it all over again because
WE HAVE HEART!!!

I just stumbled upon your blog. I enjoyed your 'G' and 'H' entries that I went and read 'A-F'. I wish I had know about the GAK recipe while I was still teaching; it would have been a big hit with most of my students.ReplyDelete
Welcome and come back soon!ReplyDelete
If you have kids in your family, share it with them. It's pretty interesting stuff.
Thanks for stopping by.
