I think I am very cautious of what I say and do to the children in my classroom. I have a terrible memory of something that happened to me way back in kindergarten. And if I still vividly remember this then I don't want a child in my classroom having a bad memory for the rest of their life. When I was in kindergarten my teacher told us we could bring in a Christmas book and she would read it to the class. Well I didn't have any Christmas books so instead I brought in my favorite book. I explained to my teacher that was all I had and she said no way was she going to read it to the class. When the time came that day for her to read the books the other children brought in she made me sit in the bathroom because I brought in a book that wasn't what she asked for! I sat there on the floor and cried. Can you believe that!!!! How about anyone else...any bad memories or am I the only one.
