Last week was by far a near perfect time helping at the school. My students are excelling and the teachers are happy with their progress. They assured me that my being there for them week after week is so important in building their confidence. This alone is by far the biggest complement I could receive and it just makes me feel super
I added another first grade class on Tuesdays right after I help my fourth graders with their math and times table. They are an awesome bunch of kids that just need a little encouragement and support from an adult that cares about them. I surprised them on Wednesday when I dressed up as Sparkles the clown for Halloween. Their smiles alone made it worthwhile along with the shock of recognition from the teachers. They told me I was adorable and loved my costume, makeup and red wig and orange legs.
When I returned on Friday wearing my normal attire, the little ones questioned how did I get the orange paint off my legs. (I had on tights but didn’t tell them) I just went on describing how I scrubbed it off with soap. They laughed and asked if I could dress up again soon and I think maybe I will.
You know it is an awesome time dressing up in costume, making a happy face and just being kooky silly and wearing bright red lipstick grinning ear to ear. That is me!
