I teach first grade and I LOVE teaching my kids about American history. Macey Hensley is invited to my room anytime! I am thinking I could learn a thing or two from this little girl. She is an inspiration!
Tonight is the end of an era in our country. We live in a democracy and democracy brings change. Change is hard. It is scary. Tonight, I am struggling. I am finding myself watching President Obama videos that are popping up all over the place. I need to smile as I struggle to wipe away my tears.
This brings me back to my profession.
Kids. I love them! I love their enthusiasm, innocence and generally positive outlook on life. Tonight, Macey's knowledge and spunk are making me smile and I need it. Go Macey! I am glad you were able to meet President Obama. Thank you Ellen for making it happen. You are welcome to visit my classroom anytime!
