Do I have a memorable student? Share a story (or two).
Uum. Yes. I have memorable students from every year I have taught.
My very first year (sped teacher)--it started to rain in the afternoon, I needed to go shut my car windows, a first grader said, "If you are going, I'm going with you." I think he was surprised I let him. We sat in my car for a minute. It was nice.
Two years ago, a first grader wore his cowboy boots nearly every day. He had a goofy grin. He reminded me of Woody from Toy Story.
This past year... A high-energy boy (seriously, which first graders are not?) stole my heart. He needed his shoes tied a lot. At the beginning of the year, I was tying his shoe, he reached out, and ruffled my hair, just like you would a dog. At first I was shocked--but then I laughed! We had many more memorable moments, and quite a few selfies. If I could keep that ball of energy for one more year I would, but he is moving on. I will miss him a lot.
