My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

"That's the Lady!" #SOL

Today was day five of school, and I've been in lots more classes, and assessing more students.  I'm quick to smile and wave at kids in the hallway, and when I quietly slide into classrooms, I have many kids volunteering to read with me.  (How awesome is that!?!?)

I'm also one of the people who works the morning car line.  With four of us directing traffic and receiving kids, it's getting easier each day.  It's fun to treat kids like celebrities as they arrive at school.  I make sure to have a smile, help little ones exit the car, and wish their parents a great day.

Today as I walked past some primary kiddos, one girl pointed at me and called out to her classmates, "That's the lady!"

"Who me?" I replied.

"That's the lady who took me out of my car today!" she told her friends.

"Did I do a good job?" I asked her, with a sheepish smile.

"Uh huh!" was the answer.

Day.  Made.


  1. How lucky for them to see your smiling face when they arrive to school! Xoxo

  2. That's the lady! I like that lady too. She is pretty awesome. I love little stories like this ... because kids are just too funny!

  3. I love being "that lady!" Sounds like you are making lots of new friends at your new school!

  4. A perfect way to start the day - for the kids, the parents and especially for you! Smiles & hugs to "That Lady"!

  5. Love your job! How great to start your day with kids' smiles each and every day. It's the job that keeps on giving, isn't it?
