T. E. A. C. H. E. R.
T – Totally and uncontrollably in love with working with children and seeing them become reflective, kind and self- assured
E – Every day bringing new challenges and situations I didn’t ever think I would have to deal with
A – Asking questions that make me question my own ability to truly support needs I have never encountered until now
C – Cooperating with and coaching tiny humans who are living lives unimaginable and incomparable to my own experience of childhood
H – Having no concept of a job that allows you to do one thing at a time
E – Ending a day so exhausted I can barely muster any words to anyone
R – Realising that through everything, there is nothing better than those tiny moments that show you the impact you’ve had on one moment for one child – academically or otherwise
