Six Word Saturday

I am truly blessed this year!

For more Six Word Saturday participants, click here.

As a parent, I had my children take small gifts to their teachers all through school. (even to the teachers I was not fond of, because I knew they worked hard and were trying to do the right thing for my children)

I have gotten used to not getting presents in this school. The number on free and reduced lunch is a large percentage of the school, I teach a course most of my students hate, I don't want to play and be their friend - I want them to learn and apply the math - so I am mean. Just ask them.

I have received small things over the years that meant much: notes, small candies, hugs. Just a few each year.

This year - I got notes, cookies, lotion, (no gift from POS for which I am truly grateful). WOW. Merry Christmas, one and all!

This sounds like I am whining - actually,no. I just don't expect anything. I have some who love me and some where we both are grateful when the year ends.

Being a teacher is the least rewarding profession and yet those who inspire others have it made. Have a Merry Christmas!

My daughter is a teacher and I know the thankless job it is.. I was a single mom of 4 for many, many years and I always sent gifts for the teachers because I always felt they were so important in my kids lives, and I loved them all, they were not only good teachers but they were good people.
Merry Christmas to you!
