trying old things
Today I was back in the classroom. I've volunteered to help out in the Kindergarten room. This time I got to run literacy centers. And you know what? I loved it.
I'm not really the room-mom type. I really don't care to collect various funds for various things. I don't enjoy planning and carrying out elaborate classroom parties. I don't want to be in charge of pta kinds of things. But, I do want to teach.
I love helping a child discover that s/he can actually read. It really is something to me.
I loved it so much this morning that I went to Grace's classroom and spoke with her teacher. Turns out there are a few students not reading near grade level. And now a few times a month I get to work with those kids!
