Principal’s Pride

As a mom I get nervous, anxious and sad that my little lovelies go off to school and are taught by people I don't really know but I am supposed to trust because they have college degrees. I used to want to be one of those people that taught other people's children. But I am okay with just teaching my own children.

This year so far in school has been tough and rough. Not really on the kids, but on Mike and I. We want to understand but struggle to help Jersey excel. She comes home telling me that she doesn't have a lot of friends, that she has to make up work during recess, and that she doesn’t get what is going on in her class. I have always worried about Jersey when it comes to learning. She shares many similarities to the things I used to do in school and how I would be when it came time to do homework.

Much to our surprise, she was receiving an award from her teacher through the Principal called Principal's Pride. The teacher nominates the student to get the award and we get to come and have lunch with her. I was so happy for her! She was excited as well and she couldn't believe that she has got this award three years in a row! The reason she got it was because she comes into the classroom and starts on her work without being asked. That she is good worker. That warmed my heart. It made me feel good that even though she might struggle her teacher still thinks she is a good student.

I’m so proud of you, Jersey!

New follower from follower fest. I'm one of those people that teaches other people's kids. I try to teach them the way I want my child to be taught and hopefully the majority of teachers are like this. Congratulations on her award.
