Friday Two Cents: Students Are Amazing Wherever I Go


This week I had the good fortune to work in two kindergarten classrooms as a supply ECE teacher (early childhood educator). The differences in the two classrooms were very distinct but the students are the same wherever you go.

Well you see, in the first classroom the students know me from previous times I have supplied in their class. As well, many of them know me as the T-ball coach that teaches and runs the T-ball league in their school. They are very happy to have me in the class and they always greet me with a smile. I am always grateful when I work with the students and the teachers in the school for they are a great bunch of people who welcome me in.

The second was my first time in that class and the school. The largest difference was the sheer size of the class in comparison to the first. In the first class they had 23-25 kindergarten students but in the second they have 31-33 kindergarten students. To say that the classroom was busy would be understating the obvious. Yet the teacher was professional as any I have been with as well as the school. This I was not a surprise because of the amazing teacher’s I have had the good fortune to work with. The amazing thing was the students’ themselves. Yes they were excited to see me, probably because I am a male, but also they were as open and welcoming as any class I have been to.


I was booked for two days at the school and the students were told after the first day that I would be returning. Many of them actually cheered and they all made sure to ask and confirm that I would be returning. Not only that, when they saw me the second day they said, “Is today your last day?” I said yes and many of responded with, “Uhhh.” I read them book I brought in and like anywhere I go they where mesmerized by the story.

Interesting. No matter where I go the students are all the same.
