Kindergarten Teacher

This is my precious, princess Katherine! She has to be the best daughter any mom could have. She is a Kindergarten teacher with 19 adorable children in her class. I had the privilege of spending the day in her classroom last week and what a BLESSING it was. After spending 32 years teaching, it was a joy to return to the classroom and watch Katherine share her knowledge and love with each eager 5 year old. She is like me in so many ways and it really makes my heart swell with pride and joy. Teaching for her is a calling and it is so heart warming to see her doing exactly what God intended for her life. This is only her 2nd year teaching but she performed with such wisdom and natural talent that you would think she has been in that classroom for decades. Katherine is and has been... a BLESSING to me her entire life and my love for her grows daily. I have to be the proudest mom alive as I watch Katherine change the lives of children one day at a time... one child at a time! PRICELESS!

Nothing brings more fulfillment then knowing that you are doing the will of God. Teaching can be a tough and sometimes thankless job. So thank you to you and your daughter for sharing your time, your patience, and your knowledge with so many kids who I know were blessed or are being blessed by your willingness and enjoyment of what you do.

She is lovely! Yes, it is such a blessing to have such a daughter and what a joy that you are able to share your God-given gifts together! Your post about her is heartwarming. My oldest daughter is also a pre-school and kindergarten teacher out West. (I have 2 biological daughters and one adopted.)

That has to be such a heart warming experience! My daughter just got her BA in Early Childhood Ed. She is 35 yrs old and it took her a very long time! She's out job hunting now!

I just love the whole premise of your site. I find it so hard to see the blessings at times, and it is so encouraging to see you out there LOOKING for them, even in the hard times.

To see our children grow up and become great adults like we had always hoped they would be is the GREATEST blessing that we could have in this life. I know...believe me...Sandy

I completely understand how proud you are of your daughter, Nancy. My daughter Mandy is a third grade teacher. We knew from the time SHE was in the third grade teaching was her calling. She's amazing and I so look forward to spending a day in her classroom. She teaches over an hour away so the timing is difficult for us but I did get to help her set her classroom up.

We're both blessed with our daughters.

How wonderful your daughter chose to be an educator like her mom!! I, too, was a teacher just like my mom. I know it always made her proud to listen to my school stories and watch me grow as a teacher. My daughter tells me that she, too, would like to be a teacher one day. The circle of life...what a blessing.
