This is a blog written by a first grade teacher. I am sharing funny stories and insights given by my students and other children I am privileged to work with. I am sharing talk from "out of the mouth of babes."

I am one who doesn't have "best friends." I have some really close friends. Well, today, one of my girl students handed me a piece of paper in the shape of a heart. On the heart, she wrote BFF. I asked her what this meant. I did know what it meant, but I wanted her to tell me. So, she told me it meant Best Friends Forever. I then asked her when did this happen. "When did I become your best friend?" She said, "Last year." I told her that I didn't know her last year. Then she said, "At the beginnng of first grade, when I met you." So, I am a BFF of a six year old. It was sweet! I took the little heart paper and taped it to my phone. I showed it to her. It was such a sweet gesture that came "Out of the Mouth of Babes."
I am a born again Christian. That is the most important thing to know about me. Being a Christian is the greatest honor and privilege in a person's life (my life!). Being a Christian, I sought and followed God's will for my life. He gave me a love for children and led me to be a teacher. I'm not just a teacher, but I have the awesome and amazing privilege to be a Christian school teacher. I teach at the Christian school associated with my church in Richmond, Virginia. I am a first grade teacher, and I love it! I love working with and teaching "my children." But, I love most serving the Lord and teaching these kids that God has given me more about Him. What a blessing! Now, being a Christian isn't always easy. It is a constant learning experience. On my blogs, I share with you some of the great things I get to experience from working with children--- "Out of the Mouth of Babes." I am also showing how I am Learning to Lean on God's Arms. That is a personal "diary" of sorts of things the Lord is teaching me, as His child.
