I bet we all have that one teacher that we remember from our school days – the one that we adored and had a positive influence on us (we also probably all remember the one we didn’t like so much but that’s another story….)
As a parent, I always held teachers in a high regard but after spending a year working as a teacher’s assistant, I found a whole new level of respect for what teachers do for our kids.
Not only do they educate our children but they dry their tears when they fall, comfort them when they are missing Mum or Dad, celebrate their achievements big and small, reassure and encourage them when they doubt themselves and counsel them when they need help managing friendships and a whole lot more!
To celebrate World Teachers’ Day, I asked my 8 year old to do a little interview with her class teacher. She came up with the questions and did the whole interview herself.
