I missed the first week of Sar’s 15 Day Challenge while I was away on vacation
I’m picking up today with Day 9: Tell us the best day of your life to date.
Ummm, this is a toughie. Like Sarah said, she hasn’t been married or given birth so it’s hard to narrow it down! I feel the same way. Have you ever had those moments when you think, “Man, my life is awesome. I’m pretty proud of myself!” Those are few and far between.
However, my greatest accomplishment has to be standing in front of a group of parents each year and telling them in so many words, “Hi, I’ll be your child’s teacher. I don’t know you, you don’t know me. But please, trust me with your child.” Ah, scary times indeed.
I remember making phone calls to all my families a few weeks before my first year of teaching. (We went on home visits as well.) One of the dad’s said, “You sound really young.”
I was 22.
Who in their right mind would want to trust their child to a 22 year old teacher.
It’s only been by God’s grace that I’ve made it through six years of teaching and still want to go back for more. Throughout those years, I’ve had moments of “Man, I’m amazing, I’m really good at this.” and “WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!”
Sure it’s been tough challenge. I may occasionally cry when I come home. But nothing makes me more excited than stepping into a classroom!
