To be Remembered as Your Preschool Teacher

Sometimes I wonder how much of a difference I’m making in the lives of the preschoolers I teach. I wonder why I’m throwing so much of myself into this.

I know I’m there to demonstrate love, first, to nurture and teach them their ABC’s, bend down and coach them on how to write their first name, and give them room to explore and play like tiny civil humans.

me, a teacher?

so through a strange turn of events, and no real effort of my own, i’ve been graciously handed a wonderful little part time job as a teacher … of wee little ones (my favorite age-group ~ 2 yr olds!), starting @ the end of this month! angel baby will be a classroom away, and i’ll work during braylon’s school hrs, following the same ISD schedule. just call me, “Miss Chelan“!

hutto baptist church / parents day out program has taken me in as one of their own, and made me feel so comfortable. PDO staff had the best 30-hour adventure on lake buchanan this weekend! i don’t know the last time i’ve felt tired yet completely refreshed, inadequate yet freely blessed, oh, & a little guilty yet deserving! my fave parts:

  1. driving the wave-runner by a lush shoreline where two deer were grazing, then racing a huge crane over the blue water, & finally screaming as i drove under a waterfall
  2. grubbin’ on a breakfast like none other (let’s see…biscuits & country gravy, french toast, crispy bacon, OJ, starbucks coffee, sausage patties, scrabbled eggs, & candy bars… i swear, it’ll be what we eat @ the feast in heaven)!

i just absorbed love like a sponge, through the beauty of His creation. i’m filled. He can wring me out now. the whole adventure and just having this job opportunity has definitely been a wink from God.
