Hair Cut Done By a Child
A few weeks ago I had a situation at school that happened with a couple of my boys. I was talking to them and trying to get the whole story and just dealing with the situation. As I was talking to the boys, I had a first happen! One of my girls took out her scissors and decided to give herself a hair cut. She cut her hair! I've heard that happen before; however, in the past eight years of teaching, I have not had that happen in my class before. So, it was a first! This class is giving me a lot of firsts. We are having fun (or at least their teacher is!). They do make me laugh at the things they do and say. They are quite eventful! I wanted to share with you what a "babe" did.
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.
