Another reason is that I'm the "nice, pushover" type of adult to the kids! Seriously, I'm not always the enforcer of the rules, and it would be hard for me to find that balance.
But, one of the main reasons I couldn't teach, is that I would get too attached to the kids, and I would be balling at the end of the year at their graduation ceremonies!
One of my favorite kinders is this sweet little boy named Andrik! He is just adorable, and always excited when he stays for a full day (because he gets to eat in the lunch room). Well, he and his mom are moving out of the country, and his last day is Friday. I'm not even his teacher, but I see him everyday when I do yard duty, and help in the lunchroom.
I see his mom every morning, and on her way out yesterday, she hands me this...
I love my job so much!!!!!
