Today marks our second day of “officially” home schooling William. He started his official first day of kindergarten yesterday. After doing this for two days (with 178 more to go) I can say that I have a newfound appreciation for our public school teachers. It cannot be easy for them to deal with 30 (or sometimes more) individual little people each with their own individual little personalities. Schools here in our local school district rank pretty highly in our state, but budget cuts keep happening. How can we expect teachers to continue on the way they should and keep paying them less and less?
I can’t say for certain, as I am only teaching one little person, but I can only imagine the emotional and physical stress that teaching 30 little people puts on our teachers. Teachers deserve respect both from students as well as parents. If you are sending your child(ren) to public or even private or church schools, then please show the teacher the respect they deserve. Teach you child(ren) to respect their teachers. Ask the teacher if there is any way that you can help. It is their job to teach your children, not raise them.
Well, I guess that’s the end of my ramblings for today. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, and I’m not going to apologize for it! A video “podcast” is still in the works. Maybe with my new computer I will be able to get it started. Thanks for “listening” to me ramble today.
