Best Day

Work today was great.

I went in today, and was assigned to a self-contained classroom. If you are out of the loop, a self-contained classroom has students with Aspberger’s syndrome and Autism.

Today was a class of fourth graders. They were really good students. Two of the students had to go to a different classroom for social studies, My fellow teacher was a buddy: we used to sub together. He was teaching the Revolutionary War and development of New Jersey. Jesse started, and I normally would work the back of the classroom. I’d walk to make sure children are on the right page and paying attention.

I started chiming in, and Jesse knew that I used to be a National Park Ranger, and I was stationed at Independence National Historical Park. In short, I know my revolutionary war history. Jesse motioned for me to take it, and so I taught fourth graders American History. The class was attentive, and peppered me with questions.

God, it felt good.
