I'm really enjoying my part-time job at the Christian primary school. Although I'm only there two afternoons a week, I've developed some special bonds with the children. It thrills my soul when I walk in the door and hear the cutest British voices say,"Yeah! Mrs. Haaaa-rrell is here!". They still correct my English on occasion but, all-in-all, they've accepted this Texan girl.
There are so many differences between a private British Christian school and the public Texas school I'm accustomed to. I wanted to share with you the one of the funniest I've encountered so far. It is very common to find a water table or sand table in a kindergarten classroom in the States. This is a great place for the children to explore and generally make the biggest mess possible! There is a water table in my classroom here and the children love to make the biggest mess too....kids are kids!
As I arrived at school a couple of days ago, I was hanging up my coat and surveying the room to see what the children had been doing that morning. I saw a sign hanging above the water table.
I wasn't sure I read it correctly so I stepped closer for a better look...
Yep, it's official, I'm not in a Texas public school anymore!
