I absolutely love this job. I know I’m supposed to be here at this time, for these kids, for this teacher. We’re really working together for the children so well while she’s out. At the end of every day I am so energized, my husband always tells me I should be exhausted but I’m not. I just love it. It’s so much fun!
In this long-term position, I’ve taught myself how to use the Promethean board and we even made our own books for their teacher on Book Creator. It’s been great. The kids have been helpful not just with me learning all this but they help each other too and show each other new ways to do things.
I brought in my flute to help them learn some United States geography with a song I know. Then the next day I see one of the kids left me this little book on my table next to my flute opened to pages of a song. Apparently I’m taking requests now.
I feel so comfortable and so at home here, I told the office I’ll only take jobs here next year, give me anything they’ve got.
