Why I Love This Job

Yesterday was one of my most frustrating days at our after-school literacy program. Everyone was just a bit more squirrelly than normal, and I might have been a bit too tired. But this note from a 3rd grade student who left the program put me on cloud nine.

I would love to think I actually taught this child how to learn, but I have to remain humble. In all honesty, his parents probably forced him to write it. But I have it hanging up on my wall nonetheless.


  1. I love how this student called you "Mr. BRAIN." Very appropriate. :-)

  2. Kids make that mistake in writing all the time, and I rarely correct them. :) Thanks for reading, Jolene!
