Mrs. Kindergarten

I ran across this article about a kindred spirit kindergarten teacher over in North Carolina named Jamie Davis

I enjoyed reading about her and her joyful approach to teaching kindergarten.

Here's a link to the article about her: Link.

What an inspiration after 3 decades of teaching!

Yes, she obviously loves teaching.

Yesterday I was talking after school with a mom who's studying nursing. She said that although nursing pays quite well, she's really in it to help people, and that at the end of the day, helping people is the best reason to work. I so agree.

The other remarkable thing is that Jamie Davis has been teaching at the same place so long. It seems like the days when people worked at one job are almost over. That's really sad. I feel lucky to have been at Dunham as long as I have.
