The Moment

On Monday, I had the most wonderful moment. It's so easy to be swept away with prep for kiddos, planning with team members and just getting used to being at work at 8 am. Then, there's a moment of clarity. In that moment, everything makes sense. Everything feels perfect. This moment for me? I went to drop off some supplies in another teacher's classroom. As I'm strolling across the playground, a little one darts from behind the handball court. She's heading full speed towards me. I give her a huge hug. She hugs me back with a huge grin on her face. In that moment, I know why I love being a teacher and I can't wait to get to know my new kiddos.
