Hey y’all! It’s been a LONG time, but I’m back! Life has definitely changed since last time I blogged. Mike and I now have a precious 13 month old girl. I was nervous to see how having a baby would change my career. Part of me feared that being a new mom would negatively affect my teaching, but i’m happy to say that having Claire has made me a MUCH better teacher. Definitely far from perfect, but better.
Just as I strive to be present and intentional when I am with my daughter, I now really focus on being the same with my students. I always really cared about my kiddos, but having one of my own makes me think of all their parents and how they want their child to be treated. One day Claire will have teachers, and I certainly want the best for her. I strive to be the best I can be for my students as well. Of course I still have MANY teacher (and mom) fails along the way! I am horrible with puppets (thankfully my students think it’s pretty comedic), forget deadlines, have horrible grammar (good thing I teach pre-k), lose my train of thought in the middle of teaching and the list goes on!
