Hello world!

This blog is a place for me to hone my writing skills. I’ve often wondered if my thoughts, my life were interesting enough for strangers to be interested in reading about it. I have lots to say. Funny stories, happy stories, stories of adventure, of joy, of fear and sorrow. I hope you’ll join me. I hope I can interest you. If not, well, I’ve bored you and you left so have a nice day!

Let’s start this out with a story from work today. I am a preschool teacher, but on occasion, I help out in the office. Which is also where teachers sometimes send children who may need a break from the classroom, or children they need a break from due to behavior. I was doing paperwork in the office this afternoon as one of my students was leaving with his father. I told him to have a good night and he did a double-take. Looking quite stunned, he asked, “You’re in the office?”

Smiling, I assured him that I would be back in the classroom next week.

“But, you’re in the office!” He sounded positively offended.

His dad understood his tone before I did. “Maybe she got in trouble for hurting friends,” he said with a warning tone. The little boy looked very concerned about this as they left. He had apparently been trying to hit or kick his friends in the classroom today. I may have a job assuring the boy that I was just helping out in the office, but I’ll never forget his expression at finding me there.
