I love children.......
who make joyful discoveries...
who realize that they CAN do it....
the sentence is fine the way it is!! (well minus several of the periods, of course! )
because even when you are having a bad day, one of them can come up to you and say something or give you a hug and the world seems brighter.
because I am constantly learning from them!
because they teach me the secret of unconditional love.
because they are curious and spontaneous
because it is exciting when their faces light up when they understand what you are teaching.
who express themselves unselfconsciously yet responsibly
who have big hearts full of love and compassion for all children......they don't mock, tease, bully, snub, or degrade others.
...most of the time!
...because I can laugh and learn along with them (and forget the tired old body a bit along the way).
...when they are asleep! (only partially kidding, we had a rough night at home)
my real answer - ...because they always give me something to smile about, and they've taught me a lot about love and acceptance.
of all ages.
I love children who will attempt my strategies, have success, and can look back at their progress from beginning to end product.
because they often don't see ethnicity, gender or disability.

because no matter how many times I've had to get on to them for breaking rules, they come up to me at the end of the day and say "I love you Miss W."
...because they enjoy the little things in life.
because you can see the "light bulb" come on when they've finally understood something.
because sometimes they say things that make you think to yourself, "They were listening..."
because they are innocent and open to learning.
because of their brutal honesty!!!
because they are a perfect example of unconditional love.
because I love how they don't hold grudges (well, younger ones at least...I'm not talking about no teenager).
kimrandy...I was thinking the same thing... at first
because when they are small they think you are the coolest & know Everything!!!!
they are God's precious gift to us.
who do their homework and behave in class!

because I make a difference!

who walk in to class and tell me that I am the coolest sub ever!!!
because they know when they have done wrong and are usually truly sorry for the wrong thing they have done. (I am talking aobut little ones)
because even though they can drive me crazy I love all of them and they can always me laugh

...because they are pure and innocent
...because I can make a difference in their lives
...because even when I tell them that I'm sad because of something they did, they still love me
. . .because they let me continue to be goofy. Which is great because I am not mature enough to be an adult. (I'm 24)
. . .because they have the most interesting view of the world ever.
. . .because the tough ones challenge you to be great.
. . .because they are always right when they are wrong and always wrong when they are right
A constant reminder of why I became a teacher and they are eager to learn
