I am thankful for my students
|October 25, 2012||Posted by Kelly under Thankful|
In 2002 I started my journey as a teacher. It started when I decided to home educate my older daughter, who is now a junior in a traditional brick and mortar high school. At first I just taught my girls, but within weeks I was teaching other children at a small co-op. The classes varied year to year at our co-op, but all the moms took turns teaching. The second year of homeschooling, I also started teaching at my church, as the 1st grade CCD teacher.
The years would quickly pass by as I homeschooled my girls and taught in homeschooling co-ops. After moving into our house, I started teaching sewing, quilting, and cross stitching. I also created some you tube videos to teach some of what I know. The past several years I have taught pyrography and quilting at my local homeschooling co-op and last year I added photography and this year creative art sampler. Starting in November I will also be teaching finishing techniques for cross stitch designs at a local needlework shop.
I don’t know how many people I have taught over the years, but I have had a great time doing it. Today one of my students asked if a rumor he heard was true. When he found out it was and that I won’t be returning as a teacher next year, several students verbalized their disappointment and said some of the nicest compliments I have ever heard. Their words completely made my day! It has been a blessing to have my life filled with great students.
