I have learned that safety for me is having Kindergartners to wake up for, Kindergartners to amuse me during the work day, Kindergartners to prepare for after school, Kindergartners to recover from in the evenings, Kindergartners to dream about, Kindergartners to wake up for . . . and the tiny paycheck and good insurance benefits I get for waking, living, and breathing Kindergartners.
I LOVE this…especially since I’m a Kindergarten teacher too!
Kindergarten is a way of life, isn’t it!
I tell people that I live in the Grade of Kindergarten!!
Oh how I love Kindergarten!! The kids are lil cute sponges. 😀

I miss being in Kindergarten this year but I still see the world through Kindergarten eyes….some of the older kids don’t quite see it the same way any more.

24 years of kindergarten and still love my job or i should say my kindergatreners. Keep ya laughing all day long.
I have 33 years in kindergarten and that’s all I remember ever wanting to do since I was a kindergartner myself!
’K’ kids, ya gotta love ’em to wanna be there. Isn’t it fab that’s us!?!?!? Our principal is pulling a switch after achievement tests. Please keep me in your prayers and I’m not too proud to ask you to ask the Lord to help Ms. Em stay where she wantsta stay. I will have to quit if he moves me. I have NO desire to be anywhere else….Hey, subbing in K will have it’s perks, eh…….NO MORE TESTS!!!! Hot diggety dog.

Yes kindergarten is the place to be! Where else in your school would four students come to school with their shoes on the wrong feet!
Oh yes…it’s so true.
It’s not the place for everyone…but teaching the young’ ones is the place for me!!! I just love it… almost always! 🙂
Shirts on backwards too!

Love my munchkins!
Having to stop and unbutton too tight pants for one who needs to go potty while reading a story aloud, and then having to stop again when they need to be re-buttoned. I do love my kindergartners!!
Juli Benson McCarlson The smiles through the dirty faces, the way their eyes light up, the excitement in telling their stories, the hugs they share, the help they give others, the songs they sing with such gusto…just love it…there’s no where I’d rather be…and in reality, not too many people want our jobs/lives…how often have you heard ‘I could never do this’ and we ‘do’ everyday – thank you, Jesus!

Hey, Nancy – love your post – I went back to kindergarten 4 years ago and I’m in love with teaching again! They bring such light and joy into my life…KIT

my first year in kindergarten one of my kiddos came in with her shoes on her wrong feet, and I told her “Megan you have your shoes on the wrong feet” and she immediately broke into heartbreaking tears. When I asked her what was wrong, she said “These are the only feet I have!”! 22 years ago, and I remember it like it was today!
hahaah that’s hilarious!! have you ever had a kid tie their shoelaces from their separate shoes together, only to find they fall on their face when they try to walk? haha kindergarten is priceless 🙂
