I’m sure this is just going to seem like an incredibly indulgent post by a proud mom, because it starts with this picture:
But I don’t post this picture just because I want you to see my pink-cheeked, blue-eyed princess, Allison. It’s because it’s pictures like this that help me be the best teacher I can be each day at school.
It’s pictures like this that remind me of the saying, “If it’s not good enough for Allie or Riley, then it’s not good enough for anyone.” A couple of years ago, that phrase was shared with us at a staff meeting as a charge to be present and do our best work with the kids in our class. After all, wouldn’t we want that very same best for our own children? 🙂
