What I'm Thankful For!
The Buzz Girls are embarking on theme called “What I’m Thankful For,” and this week will focus on books and writing...
And I have to say, What I’m Thankful For is my second grade teacher. Who recognized in me an unusual talent for storytelling, who called my mother in to share the news, and then announced to the class that for the rest of the semester, I’d be sitting out the reading circle to focus on writing.
And while I remember being baffled that story writing was something a teacher would take notice of--I mean, it was fun, like recess, right?--I also remember a sense of pride, and feeling special in the classroom, something I’d not feel again for a very long time.
So I’m Thankful for an Intuitive Teacher who help light my way! Does anyone have a supportive teacher story to share from their background?
