Welcome back! 

First day back, let me just say: today felt like three days in one. 

It’s been one of those days when a stiff drink could help but I keep thinking that everything I do will benefit the children. That just being there, making them smile, listening to their stories, it helps. 

I’m so interested in the social skills that students need to be accepted in our society. And I’m so interested in how students who don’t have those skills express themselves. 

That’s what I’m there for. To listen, to nurture, to care for when the teacher may be too busy to do so. 

So yea, today was rough. But let’s just say I feel like I’m needed. I feel like I am doing something meaningful and that’s the reason I’m waking up tomorrow in freezing weather at 5 in the morning to go to work. 

Happy Monday!
