THIS is why I love my job

Thursday, May 24, 2012

My last class of the day (my behavior challenged class) is in charge of putting up our "Under the Sea" mural (pictures next week, when we're finished - I promise).

So I demonstrated, we had guided practice, then independent practice (as in, I showed them what to do, helped them do it, then let them work with minimal supervision).

We finished almost half today - 5 panels up, and most of that area with the borders on. Looks great!

After the class was excused and the items cleaned up, I went outside to see how things looked - and one of my students from the first half of the year wandered by, late to leave. (This girl is about 15 yrs old and repeating 8th grade - sweet, nice, but not academic - nor artistic. But a nice kid.) She looked and said, "Oh Ms. Schwartz, that looks so nice, who did this?" So I told her that it was the sea creatures everyone had made, and I did the background areas.

She looked a little more closely, and screamed, "Oh LOOK!!!! That's MY FISH!!!!!" (Pointing to a big pink fish) "OH, I feel so SPECIAL!!!!!!!!"

And she went skipping off to the bus.
