It would be nice if I could one day say, "I miss teaching." Adults: smiles and a pleasant demeanor do matter to children. One of the girls today, who was in my classroom for only 30 minutes or so, said bye with a big smile on her face when she walked by me while I was on yard duty this afternoon. Her mom looked at me for a bit and then smiled. When her car passed, she was excitedly waving out the window. Absent father figure? Or just happy to have a [somewhat] pleasant adult around? I couldn't remember her name until after she was gone.
