This I Know

A couple of months ago, I started a new job.  I work in the same school but now I work in a special education classroom with children in kindergarten through second grade.  I loved this job from the very first day and I have NEVER loved the first day of any job, even jobs I grew to love eventually.  This is where I belong, where I am meant to be.

I work primarily with a five-year-old in kindergarten who has Down Syndrome.  In all my years of working with kids, he is the most strong-willed kid I have ever met  (and I’ve met a lot of them!)  

One day, when he was being more strong-willed than usual, if that is even possible, the teacher said,  “Sometimes, they make us question our sanity.”

“Oh, no”, I said, “I don’t have to ask.  I already know I’m crazy.”

And then we all just laughed.

We laugh a lot in this new classroom of mine.  I feel like I am home.
