This is a later in life career change. After being in the corporate world, I was given the chance to stay home with my kids! I was home for 7 years with my boys and while at home, went back to school to get my elementary ed license. I have taught basic skills for K-2 and 4/5. I have taught 4th grade, 1st grade, and now 3rd grade. I have moved around a lot in the elementary grades.
My best memory to date was the last day of school. One of the fifth grade students (who got in a lot of trouble) sought me out to say goodbye. He hugged me tightly and started to cry -- excited and scared to be done with elementary school. I pushed him to work hard all year and I think those high standards are what made him so successful.
