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."

Today, one of my little girls passed a note to a boy in my class. The note had only one word on it: "Behave." Now, I think this is funny for a few reasons. One, she passed a note. Two, the message is quite funny. Three, the boy she gave it to is VERY well behaved, most of the time. The girl who passed the note is one who does not always behave. So, I just thought it was funny that she passed it to him. Yes, I laughed when I read the note. I thought it was cute, so I wanted to share 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.
