I’ve had fun reading the weekly summer link ups at I Heart Grade 3 and I’m joining the party this week!
This is a tough one…I’m certainly proud of my children and feel that being their mommy is an accomplishment (some days more than others! ;))
But I’m going to take this one as a teacher question…so…
I am proud to be a Reading Recovery teacher.
I teach the most struggling first graders to read. My students and I accomplish so much together in a short time and it is truly an amazing job that I consider myself lucky to do.
Becoming a Reading Recovery teacher is no small task, but beyond that, I am proud and humbled to be part of the work that Reading Recovery does for kids. The learning statistics are amazing, but regardless of the hard data…like all teachers, we are doing hard work that changes lives.
