Principal Newsletter April 16th - 20th

Principal Moment

All teachers have those days when we think the cashier’s position at any store is looking pretty good.  But then just when we’re about to lose our minds, a student does or says something that reminds us of why we went into this profession in the first place.

When a child gives up the money that he has earned all year to a family who lost their home to a fire-we remember.   When a student asks if the stars in the sky are pointy like the ones we draw-we remember.  When we spot a child praying over a dead baby bird by the bike racks-we remember.  When a child scratches an itch and says, “It inches,”-we remember.  When a child thinks an autobiography is a story about cars-we remember.  When a child says, “Mrs. Killian, you could probably teach school.  You seem smart enough.”-we remember. 

How grateful I am that I get to come to school every day with children who help me remember!
