What I love about teaching second grade...

-When you walk into the room after you've been gone, they act as if it is Christmas morning
-When they leave at the end of the day, the wave wildly out of the bus window with huge grins on their faces as if they did not spend all day with you
-They regularly compliment your shoes and accessories
-They think you are funny
-They think you know everything
-They love to get hugs
-You get to see the excitement on their faces when they finally understand something
-They share some VERY interesting stories
-They love to learn
-They make you love notes and drawings


I couldn't imagine doing anything else..
