Happy Friday, friends! Today I’m delighted to share a guest post with you that I wrote for Candace Bisram’s wonderful blog Pocketful of Smiles. It’s about some lessons I learned from my week of teaching kindergarten a few summers back. Hope you enjoy!
What I Learned From a Week of Teaching Kindergarten
Home from work, I flopped onto my bed without even taking off my shoes. “Oh my gosh!” I sighed into the phone to my parents. “I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so exhausted.”
It was summer, and I was teaching a weeklong writing and public speaking class through the local Parks & Recreation Department. When I signed up to teach the class, I didn’t know what age group I would be assigned. And then, when I learned my assignment, I wasn’t worried.
Kindergarten. How hard could it be? We would read picture books, sing songs, draw some pictures. Golden.
The first day, I realized the extent of my misconception…
That’s all for today! Hope you have a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend. 🙂
