But first, I must tell you something that happened as the kids lined up for the bus yesterday. A few teachers were outside talking about their own children who are in college. They were saying, "no way would I ever let my child become a teacher!" Wow, ouch. I was so surprised. I think teaching is both great and honorable. Why wouldn't I want my kids to want to do the same?
Every Friday I meet my husband for a drink before we get the kids. Sometimes it's the only hour we get to talk. I value that time with him so much. We share a ton on Fridays. So I told him about what I heard and how sad it mad me feel. He said, "I know, but for every one of them, there are hundreds of people like you who love and value what you do." He's right and you all are proof of that. Don't get caught in the mire, be so proud of what we do!
On to the giveaway...
I have learned so much from all of you that I'd like to help you learn more from others too. I will give a $10 gift certificate to TPT.
