Today was my first day back in the real world of the public school system... And despite all my fears and doubts and worries, I absolutely loved it. There's no doubt in this heart of mine that God made me with a sweet spot for little ones. But that's not to say it hasn't been hard to embrace over the years. Public school and I have battled it out once before. And I have no shame in saying I lost. Big time. But this time I'm older, wiser, and more equipped than I was before. :) Aaaand, to make matters even better, this time around I'm an assistant. :)
Today I was with the three-year-old autistic students. [Think of your favorite three year old with less verbiage and more sensory-overload.] Precious. Precious. Precious. I'm not sure if my assignment in this room will last beyond the week, but I'm going to soak up every minute I get with these little treasures.
