Friday Two Cents: I Love Working With The Students


Well today at school we had our Halloween parties and parade for the students. The students always want to know what I will be for Halloween but I keep that bit of information as close to my chest as possible. The only clue I gave them was that my beard was part of my costume. I know it’s not much but I like to keep them guessing.

Well I won’t keep you guessing, I was dressed up as Killian or Hook from Once Upon a Time, a television show. It was a great time dressing up with the students but a lot of fun dressing up with the staff too. Many of them had very interesting and inventive costumes. But the best part about this day actually started yesterday.

At the school they had a Halloween party for the students, run by the parents. In the school they had different games and activities for the students. The principal was present and we were talking before it began and she asked if I was staying. I said no I had stuff to do at home. She thought so because she reassured a little girl that I was not going tonight because she did not want me to see her costume until Friday. She said she wanted to make sure that “Mr. Paul does not see my costume until Friday” to surprise me; otherwise she had to wear a different costume.

I thought that was adorable. And today she showed me her costume. It was Elsa from Frozen by the way, but she was so cute and the look on her face was priceless. No matter how many Halloween’s I have had with the students they always seem to surprise me. Not with the costume but with their desire to feel great at what they are wearing and their yearning to see my reaction to it. And people wonder why I love working with students.
