au revoir

on thursday i had to say good bye to my little friends in the 2nd grade.
it was horrible.
i almost cried a few times.
ever since i was a little girl i have wanted to be a 2nd grade teacher.
and that dream has further been confirmed
i have absolutely LOVED the past 5 weeks in Mrs. Kenyon's 2nd grade class.
and saying good bye to them was super hard.
when i left that day they each got the chance to come up individually and say goodbye
they also each made a card for me.
these cards are something i will treasure for ever.
here are a few of them
man do they make me giggle

this last one was definitely one of my favorites.
this is the same little girl mentioned in this post.
she is adorable.
her card translates to "i like you so so much. i mean like you could not hurt any ones feelings like not even on purpose. i like your clothes. i like how you always have an expression when you read to us. and you have beautiful hair. i am jealous"

seriously how cute are these kiddos?

okay i do have one more story i need to share as well.
for the past couple of weeks i have been working one on one a lot with this little boy. he has a really hard time in school, and i just kind of decided to step in as his little helper. i spend the whole math block next to his side helping him understand and keep up with the rest of the class. on the last day, their teacher gave them 6 problems to do on their own. normally this little boy jsut can't consentrate on his own, so thinking this was the case, i went next to him and started talking him through the problems. all of a sudden he told me he wanted to do it himself. surprised i said okay and walked away. i walked around the room and started checking some of the other students work, and as soon as my little friends hand shot up i nervously ran over to him so see how he did and how i was going to tell him that it wasn't quite right. to my surprise, he got 100%. i was shocked! i looked at him, eager to tell him and could see the nervousness in his face. when i told him he had them ALL right, the way his face lit up literally made me choke up. he was so so proud of himself, and was soooo excited. it made me just kind of stand there for a second. i felt that teacher feeling, and fully grasped the whole reason i want to be a teacher. though it may seem silly and miniscule to all of you, it was one of the greatest feelings i have ever experienced, and makes me that much more eager to have my own class someday.
