Drawing in Class

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing.

She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."

The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, "They will in a minute."

I Teach

I Teach
I teach because there is great fulfillment that comes in
working with boys and girls.
I teach because I wanted to be a sculptor, and I can do so,
by shaping lives for the future.
I teach because I wanted to be an artist, and I can do so,
by painting dreams for children.
I teach because I wanted to be a musician, and I can,
in giving inspiration for children.
I teach because I wanted to be a historian, and I can in having
recorded something for the lives of great men to come.
I teach because I wanted to be a poet, and I can in writing
impressive passages of mankind.
I teach because of the reward I receive when a child's
frowns turns to smiles, or when he/she says, "Now I understand."
I teach because of the personal growth I receive each day as
I venture out on a quest for knowledge and techniques
to help my students understand.
I teach for it is in this where I can see the worthwhile
and true fulfillment of living.

Continuing Education

I'm taking six credits online through the college I received my diploma from.

Not to mention the fact that I'm going to be a first time parent right at the end of the school year. I'm quite excited about that.

The classes should be fine. Just something more for me to do when I'm not really bored. :)

That's all for now...


Funny Kid Stories

On the first day of school my first graders were anxious to show me the things that they had brought to school in their backpacks. One little girl came up with a small memo book with a picture of a kitten on the front and told me "Mrs. Byers, I have 2 of these in my backpack!" I responded that it was very nice but, since we wouldn't be using them in school perhaps she could take it home and write in it or do some homework in it. With a huge smile, and as pleased as punch, she said, "It's a diarrhea! (diary!)" I could not stop laughing!

I worked in an Elementary School clinic for seven years. Needless to say, I have seen a lot of funny things in there. However, one day this sweet little girl came in. She had what appeared to be a cold in her right eye. Trying to rule out pink eye, I asked her if it was crusted over when she woke up that morning. She said, "Yes, I think the sleepy man put too much boogers in it!" Priceless huh?!

My family was sitting down eating dinner, and our five year old seemed to be upset. She looked up at my husband and I and said "Mom Dad my teacher said a bad word at school today. I said "oh,no what did she say" She looked at my husband and I to see if she was going to get into trouble and said "Well, today we were learning about bugs, and she said that they were in-sex (insects)"

A friend of mine was teaching an art lesson to several first graders. She was trying to get them to remember the colors, and how to make other colors from the primary colors. A little boy walked up to her, held up his first finger and said sweetly "Red". The teacher said that that was very good. He then held up his third finger and sweetly said "Blue". She again replied that that was good. Then she asked him "What color do those two colors make?" He then raised his fist in the air, proudly extended his middle finger and shouted"PURPLE!!!!"......just as the principal walked into the room. It took the principal three glasses of water and several tissues in order to compose herself and resume her day.

I passed out snack to a class of kindergartners. One young man looked up at me and told me that he wanted to share his cookie. (He had licked, smeared and gobbered it all over his face.) I told him no thank you, and explained that I had gained weight over the winter break and needed to be careful about eating snacks. He looked at me and I could tell his little mind was thinking. I started to feel bad and decided I WOULD choke down the cookie somehow! But then he said, "Teacher, its ok, really, I think you look the same fatness!"
