  • I lovehearing fellow teacher's perspective. I expected I would have a level of care and concern for the children entrusted to me but I could not have imagined the amount of space they would take up in my heart. I never dreamed that my mind would be so consumed with constant concern and planning to deliver the very best to my students. I didn't plan for the level of non educational worries and hopes for my students. I didn't realize the extent of the whole child teaching and nurturing I would be presented with. I never dreamed the rewards reaped would be so fulfilling. What a blessing it is to help grow these children into the beautiful adult souls they will become.
