I start back to school Tuesday. Every year is full of excitement for me as I meet my new little people for the year. Everything is so fresh and new and I am also refreshed with hope after my summer break. I love the beginning of the school year!
Since I began teaching I have developed a "knack" for teaching children with special challenges. Sometimes I wonder about this reputation I am gaining in this little community, but I know the kids with those needs are placed with me for a reason. I know some people would pull their hair out, but for some reason I just understand what I need to do to get through to these kids. I am thankful to have these little ones in my care for the school year. I learn a lot about patience and my creativity is pushed to the limits sometimes, but I also know it makes me a better teacher to the "regular" kids.
So today on this Gratituesday I am thankful for the parents, administrators, and coaches that entrust me with these kids. I am also grateful for the wisdom given to me to know what to do when I need to do it. I never was one to say I had patience when I was younger, but I am sure thankful I have it now.
Now you should head on over to Laura's to see what everyone else is grateful for today on this Gratituesday.
Until next time,
