Today was awesome. The child that was having troubles on Friday told me today I was “his hero.” I never thought he would say something so kind to me. I thought he didn’t care for Mr. Riley much at all. It reminds me that we never know what kinds of day these kids are having and/or their homelife. Sometimes their bad behavior in class is related to that and not you, the teacher. My role is to take care of my students, even on their bad days. I like to write down anecdotes about days like this and bring them out on rainy days!
