Five Days

Five-Minute-Friday-badgeI am with them for five days of the week. I work with them. I laugh with them. I share with them. I learn with them. I get to know them. I get to teach them.

For five days a week, I am with a group of children whose ages range from 5 to 7. I enjoy their individual personalities as they learn to work independently in a classroom situation. My days are busy and filled with movement. I see children learn to read, write independently, gain self confidence, and thrive in the learning environment that I have created.

The five days a week that I am with the children in my class can be tiring, stressful at times, satisfying … and fun. I walk to work with a bounce in my step and unlock the classroom door with pleasure. I am thankful everyday that my path has led me to to a place which not only allows me to help others, but also gives me much fulfilment.

How do you spend five days of the week?

  1. When I read your words, I get a real sense of the pleasure you take in working with the children. 🙂 That’s so wonderful to see! I also teach children, mostly my own these days, mostly at home…but my age group is similar to yours. I love how much wonder there is in their approach to the world and all the things in it. Visiting you today from FMF (#13).


  2. What a blessing you must be for all those children and their parents! Everyone should be so blessed as to walk to work with a bounce in their step. 🙂 Visiting from FMF#23.


  3. Goes to show how teachers are very well respected… just the thought that you are shaping their future is immense enough.
    Sometimes I work with 13-year-old 33-year-olds 😀 So I envy you.


        1. You need to know where you want to be and have the courage to move when the opportunity arises. This is what I did and, against all odds, I am teaching at the school where I wanted to work.
