Why I love my job: Reason number 526,974

One of my kiddos wasn’t in school yesterday, but came to back to school night with her mom. She ran up to me, gave me the biggest hug, and said, “Ms. S, I wasn’t grumpy or sad I couldn’t see you yesterday because I had a beautiful picture of you in my mind all day so I was happy!”

yeah. I pretty much melted on the spot.
love my job.
