The day finally came! Or at least that is what Lillian would say. Her teacher needed a Substitute teacher and she reached out to see if I was available. (I started substitute teaching in our district in January.) I asked Lillian if she would be okay with it...and she was beyond excited. So I guess I'm still cool! After two days of teaching in her class, we made some good memories. She helped me before the day started and helped organize the classroom afterwards. I'm happy to report that she said I did a good job!
When I signed up to be a substitute teacher, I didn't think I'd actually be in her class. But I was happy to help her teacher out by covering her class while she spent time with family. To me, that is the reason....to be there for the students and help out teachers. They do so much for our kids. While we are waiting to Adopt, I thought, how I can help contribute to our community--this has been a good experience for me.
We celebrated with a Sonic drink after the school day. I'm sure we will remember these 2 days for years to come and we definitely had some good laughs too.
