Never Give Up!


Tonight was the last night of Tuesday Tutoring.
 
Ten of my students have been staying after school until 5:45 for reading and math instruction.

Whoo!!
It has been fun....I'm tired. 

It amazes and impresses me each week that these kids are willing
to make the commitment to stay until after dark. 

I'm so proud of them!

That's something they probably will never understand. 

Tonight we had pizza and cookies. 

Learning and food go hand in hand in my class. :)

They do understand that.

Yay for the food part..and you must be a really good teacher to do that. It seems school is so much harder than it used to be, so much is taught to them so early, it can be real hard on them sometimes. I used to come home from school and I was HOME..changed and went out to play, now they had 2-3 hours of homework even as little kids! I feel bad for them.

I've been tutoring with Whiz Kids in the inner city and now that they have to make up snow time the day has been extended another 40 minutes..we give them a snack before we start but I still see lots of yawns...it's a long day for them! I'm sure they appreciate the pizza with their studies!!

I used to attend an art class in the evening and the instructor always ordered pizzas! It was a blast!

Hooray for you for putting in that extra time. You are an angel!

I am certain that your students will always remember that you fed them. Teachers like you are so important to children and I remember my teachers who went out of their way to be kind.
