This week was great! I taught from Kindergarten to grade seven. The little ones played nicely together at their chosen centres. I didn't have to break up one squabble! They have already learned to care and share. I was impressed!
There is a kindness initiative in the school and it is working! The principal came in and shared how they had just witnessed the kindness of older students helping younger students getting out of their wet, snowsuits. It makes a difference in all their lives, and is greatly appreciated. This kindness initiative is seen and felt everyday, by everyone. It is the only school where the students, regardless of which class I am in, thank me for being their teacher that day. They thank ME! Do I feel appreciated? Yes, I do. It warms my heart. And yes, I love working there, as an On-Call teacher.
And do I thank them for being amazing students, especially towards a TTOC? Absolutely!
Kindness, keep it going!
