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 teach at a Christian school that has a dress code. A part of the dress code is that the boy's shirt tails need to be tucked into their pants. Well, the other day one of my boy's shirt tails were untucked. I told him to tuck it in. He obeyed and did. Well, it was taking him a while, and I asked him to hurry up so we can start our reading group. The reason why it was taking so long was that his hands got "stuck" in the back of his pants. I had to pull his arm to help him get "unstuck." I tried not to laugh, but I had to because I was amazed that something like that could happen. I have seen a lot being a first grade teacher, but I have to admit that this was a first for me. I'll tell you that life being a first grade teacher is NEVER boring! I thought it was funny, so I wanted to share something "babes" do.
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.
