3/25/22 – Oh The Feels……

My Spring Break Update

When you’re leaving the gen ed classroom to pull a group and a 2nd grader who apparently really likes you a lot, must put a note in your pocket.

True story as it happened today. I was heading for the door and then I hear her little voice say “I have card for you, let me put it in back pocket.” She then attempts to put said note in the back pocket of my jeans. I shout with surprise thank you (and tell her to skip the pocket just put the note with the rest of my traveling classroom tools.)

After a pretty challenging day that included important people just walking by me 6 times without even saying hello, this note brought on the feels. This note reminds me that the most important people often can’t wait to see and talk to you. This note reminds me that the students see me, and that’s all that matters.

If you’re wondering, yes, this is the same young lady who planted a big hug on me the other day and didn’t want to run off to her gen ed teacher when she had come through the door. Happy start of spring break indeed.

  1. We are sometimes oblivious to our impact. Just because we don’t physically see an impact, doesn’t mean it’s not there. You mean so much to this little girl and others. Accept your worth and love you for being this important!
