Kindergarten teachers are amazing: lessons learned
I've always thought highly of teachers. But lately I've spent a lot of time in my son's classroom. Wow.
- •Label everything!!22 kids come in from the playground and throw 22 coats, 22 snow pants, 44 boots, hats, and mittens into a giant, unlabeled pile on the floor. OK, not all do this. But a lot. And is a holy mess that she has to deal with every day. I thought I had done a "good enough" job labeling his stuff. Today I broke out the Sharpie.
- •Volunteer when you can, if you can.This woman never stops. Not even to eat. If the kids are at a "special", she's tidying up, getting ready for their return, etc. An hour of help sharpening pencils or whatever is super-helpful. ✏️
- •Imagine how annoying your kid is sometimes ... and multiply that by 22. 😳 Keep that in mind next time you lose your cool with your kid.Kindergarten teachers are freaking SAINTS!! And they have to keep calm through it all.
