Day 28: Hope

Each day as I enter the classroom that has been assigned to me, I hope that it will be a day in which the children will learn something. It may be academic or social. If a child speaks up, it is a sucess. If a child counts by twos, it is a sucess. If a child writes a full sentence, it is a success. If a child waits patiently in line, it is a success. My hope is that each day a child will discover something new or master something old.

Sometimes it is this hope that encourages me to repeat the same thing over, and over … and over again. Eventually my message is understood. “Little steps,” I keep thinking. And eventually the little steps lead to the end goal.

  1. Small steps! Sounds like me and the battle with technology, Colline. 🙂 Alas, some of my steps appear to be backwards, but the world loves a trier, so I’ve heard. Carry on your great work!


  2. Those little steps lead to something bigger one day for sure Colline. Sometimes we see it, sometimes we don’t. I know whatever you do, you give all of them hope for the future. 😀
