second blog

After about the six week of school now all of my students final understand my color system. One of my students in each class explained it to the students that still did not understand it. For class one day this week i explained to all my classes the new way that the state wants teachers to teach them. Some of the students looked lost as to the new way. After explaining the new system some where OK with it and others were not. The day after i explained the color system and the new way of teaching students where able to do the lesson the next much easier. As for a teacher It made my class and day allot easier, but of course you all ways have those students that struggle. But the biggest supprise of the week was when a student came to me and expressed themselve to me about family problems. I sent the student to see the counselor to see if counselor could help the family. The student saw me the next day and told me thanks for the help and it made me feel good that the student got the help that she needed. After helping the student i have decided to have one of my classes take on the role as emergency help unit to help food drives, clothing drives, and other progects this school year.

Teaching is very rewarding like that..I think that the children that always come to me for things are the ones that are experiencing many of the same things I did during those years. PAY IT FORWARD.
