Beans & Rice for the Soul

teaching, learning and living around the world

Sweet, sweet goodbyes!

I love teaching.
I love teaching middle school kids in particular.

Teachers are often asked to celebrate their students.
So I thought it might be a good idea to boost morale
by secretly asking our students to show some love to their teachers.

I had an absolute ball making this and finally shared it with the teachers yesterday
for one last sweet, sweet goodbye!  Without further ado:

Little did I know, there was a video being made secretly for me!
I just diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeedddddd laughing when I watched it.

So they really got me.  The way I drink my coffee, move around the room, call out off task behavior, crouch down and whisper, sit on one leg, drink more coffee, say no to bathroom requests, clap with enthusiasm for a double period together…. the list could go on.

I so love teaching.  It’s hard work that is important to the world.  And as I move on to a different kind of hard work, that I also think is important to the world… my biggest wish is that some of my students will become teachers one day!

    I loved watching both of those, the first one reminded me of Giggle Girls (not one but two Sara giggles!) and the 2nd was a peek into Sara Rich the Teacher, very cool to see. I’m sure staff and students will miss you very much!!
