A not so perfect preschool teacher’s valentine poem

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on February 14, 2011

in On becoming a Professional

As a preschool teacher

I am not always perfectly great…

I sometimes plan things to do

That are not considered age appropriate…

And sometimes I spend too much time

planning for every minute of the day…

Instead of giving my students more time

To learn through their play…

And sometimes I talk too much

When I really should stop and listen…

And sometimes I get too busy

Instead of giving the kids my attention…

But in spite of all my faults

There’s something I always do…

I treat each student with kindness and respect

and tell them “I love you!”

Thank you for joining me here on Teach Preschool

and may you all continue to learn and grow with me…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey, I think I recognize the “not age appropriate” idea as bleeding art tissue paper. Am I right?

Haha – yes but that is an age appropriate activity – I just couldn’t find any photos I really liked to go along with the poem:)
