Each year comes with a new resolution. Mine is simple, but yet difficult to attain: to have fun! Working with children is a big responsibility and maintaining a good relationship with parents can be challenging, so no wonder that in the rush of: setting up activities, changing classroom areas, teaching, supervising the children’s play to keep them safe, dealing with aggressive behavior, making sure they eat their lunch, brush their teeth, sleep, sometimes I feel drained and I find it difficult to have a big smile on my face at the end of the day.
What to do then? Well…to have fun doing this. While I love doing all these things separately, in the rush of the day sometimes I don’t have time to do the most important thing: to play.
So, it’s set! In 2014 I’m going to have fun no matter the task, no matter the things that might come in my way.
