Everyday parents put their trust in me. They hand over the care of their child with the hope that I educate them and give them a positive learning experience. They trust that I will guide their son or daughter through the discovery of learning; that I will build their self esteem and protect them from harm.
I know that I did (and continue to do so) with my own children.
It is a wonderful thing to hear parents tell of how happy their child is at school, to hear that they look forward to spending their day with me. When I hear these comments, I know that I have achieved a part of what I set out to do: to make learning enjoyable. And I know that, because of their child’s comments and attitudes, the parents will continue to trust in the work that I am doing with their child.
