I love seeing joy on the faces of the children I teach. When I think back on today, I remember many such moments: when they were told that they were going to learn a new vocabulary game; when they saw the mini Halloween booklet I had prepared for them; when we were given a game (princess monopoly) that had been donated by a parent; when the time finally arrived for hungry tummies to eat lunch.
The joy I see in the children’s faces reflects the joy that I feel in my heart. My joy leads to a feeling of contentment and the knowledge that I am in the right place doing the right work.
