I'll admit it, sometimes it feels that way when I'm seated next to a crying child in a restaurant. Or when they run past me on the beach and kick sand on my face while I'm trying to peacefully bask in the sun. Or when they keep bumping my chair on the airplane when I'm just trying to pretend they don't exist.
Then, enter my home to see that half my bookcase is loaded with children's books and that my desk is scattered with workbooks, stickers and a lesson planning book. Enter my classroom where I spend 50+ hours per week. Perhaps then, people will see where my heart truly belongs.
