It’s funny how some distance, makes everything seem small. And the fears that once controlled me, can’t get to me at all!
It’s time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me. I’m Free!
There is nothing more exhilarating and eye opening than being in a classroom filled with preschoolers who are singing the lyrics word for word to “Let It Go” from Disney’s Frozen. I had chills and tears in my eyes as I watch the students I had been teaching, singing their hearts out. Right then and there it just hit me, this is why I’m here… this is why I made the decisions I did, and why I had to “let it go” to make a better life.
I absolutely love working with kids, it can be exhausting and you’re exposed to countless germs (I’m writing this as I am getting over the stomach bug), but it is all worth it to see their smiles and hear their giggles every day. I have always felt that I learn more from the kids than they learn from me. Every child has taught me a lesson and touched my heart in some way. They have taken the worst of my days and made me forget about them, they have made me smile when I wasn’t sure it could be possible to smile.
Remember that children are our future, these little hands that playing with toys and spreading the germs, are the ones who will be running the world and taking care of us when we are older. We are all teachers of children. And they are all teachers of us. It is our duty to teach them how to treat others, how to care for the Earth, and how to “Let It Go”.
