the little things


this picture and post are completely unrelated. but this was my favorite picture from the weekend and i just had to share.

as i have already stated on here many times in the past few weeks, teaching this year is hard! it has been stressful and a lot of work and i am slowly adjusting. but there are some little things that remind me of why i put all of the effort in. after school some days i tutor 4 students ranging in ages from 5 to 22. on top of school it is hard work but those 4 hours during the week are some of my favorite. teaching 1 on 1 has both pros and cons but my favorite part of tutoring is really getting to know the student.

i only tutor one student from the school i work at and he always makes a point to find me and say hello. it.is.the.cutest. and this week his mom was so excited to tell me that he got 100% on both of his english quizzes. both of them! since he is in first grade, we weren't sure how he was going to do when it came time to take his quizzes. what a relief to know that it all paid off. a lot of times i think that i still am completely lost when it comes to teaching. thank goodness i have these moments to remind me that i must be doing something right.

I'm really not sure I could cope with the stress of being a teacher - I have a huge amount of admiration for you!
