I took my daughter to her school to meet her teacher this morning. The little girl who directed me to the signs posting students’ names and teachers so I could find out her teacher’s name assured me that her teacher is one of the two nicest kindergarten teachers at the school.
She is so excited about starting school. Which begs the question… what happens to that excitement? I would argue that a lot of kids are happy when school starts again, but don’t want to admit it lest they be considered “geeks.” I was like that, anyway. I liked school. On the other hand, there are some kids that harbor genuine hatred for school. It makes me sad to think at one time they were my daughter’s age, excited and ready to learn. Sort of like a light that went out.
