I got to spend a year with the most amazing kids and learned A LOT about working in a classroom. It makes me glad that I didn't get accepted into a teaching course the first time around because I would NOT have been ready.
Before I left, I got the best presents, including the largest card I've ever seen:
It was really special because the kids each drew themselves - and some even managed to write their own names:
(Which, yeah, I've blocked out because you don't need to know them.)
And the gift was just amazing: little superhero handprints with a fingerprint from each of the kids, all framed up.
One of the teachers I worked with even gave me a mini Marvel cake and a bunch of chocolate.
Neither of which will last long, I'm sure.
I had such a great time this year and I'm looking forward to my next classroom experience.
