Lucky Teach (SOL #4)
I am so blessed and have the best group of students this year. Our class helps one another, treats each other with kindness, and is excited to learn at school each day.
While at the the girls basketball game yesterday I was able to watch some of my students support each other and celebrate each other's successes. One student in particular sat and cheered on his classmates' team. You could see the worry in his eyes as his classmates played in their game. He wanted all of his friends to do great, and wanted to be a part of their win, or loss. You could feel his emotions through the stressed out looks on his face.
This reminded me of how lucky I am to be part of all of my students' lives and watch their interactions together. I have such a wonderful opportunity to be with my students as they are growing up and deciding, through their actions, what kind of person they want to be. As a teacher, I am hopeful and excited to see how the choices they make impact the people they become.
#5thGradeTigers, I look forward to helping you move forward in your lives and supporting you as you become the incredible people you are destined to be.
