Back to School

Another school year has begun, well began...3 weeks ago. I must admit, I have not really taken in a normal start of year. My first year was understandably crazy, and last year I had all of 40 kids in my room at all times, which made for utter insanity, and this year we are doing wedding, wedding, wedding. It just makes me laugh. The thought, "What will next year bring?" echoes through the recesses of my crayola brain.

However, that being said, I have learned a few things these past few weeks. I have a student who is unlike any other student I have had. This student is undeniably brilliant, and yet unmistakeably unmotivated. I had been warned...told all about this student and told that they would not accomplish anything, and subsequently, not amount to much in my room. Yet, this is not the case. An iPod, a toad, and lots of "brain breaks" later, this student is starting to see their worth, and their God given ability. I am so thankful for the blessings my job brings.

Everyday I get the pleasure to see the widening of eyes when connections are made, and get the privileged of hearing the laughter that resounds through the hallways after we dance, and sing, and God-forbid, learn. Although it is one of the hardest jobs I can possibly imagine, I feel so lucky!
