It is perhaps one of the hardest thing I have ever done. I have to daily remind myself (and pray) that I must see these kids as God sees them. I pray every morning for patience with my kids and that I can show His love to them. Sometimes I easily get overwhelmed in the TAKS, TEKS, grading, meetings.
Friday was a great reminder of why I do what I do ... (It's not for the money)! I have enjoyed creating the Davila Darlings (our school's spirit team) and getting to know these girls on another level. We had to decorate for our school dance which was fun. Then I had to chaperone the dance, which is always fun! Getting to see the kids in a different environment ... and see them show off their "moves"! Reminds me off the awkwardness that comes with a middle school dance (and middle school life for that matter)!
This year I have also become REALLY good friends with 2 girls I work with. They have been a saving grace. I am blessed to have them to laugh, cry, and stress with!
This is just a glimpse of my year!
