She’s there on the other side of the curtain, the gray one dividing our classrooms. Teaching kindergarten while I supervise grade school students, I often hear her singing or explaining a lesson or giving instructions to her class.
There have been many Bible stories overheard at the start of the day, offering encouragement to my weary soul. Sometimes the simplest truths, those on a kindergarten level, are the ones that we desperately need to hear. I sit at my desk, soaking them in while students test or begin working in our quiet classroom.
Several times a day, one of us pops the curtain open, asking the other to supervise both classes while a quick break is grabbed. It’s these times of connection in the midst of our full day, when an understanding smile is exchanged, that remind us we are in this together ~ especially if the day is less than stellar.
One of my favorite parts of teaching is working with the lady on the other side of the curtain. Her kindness, thoughtfulness, and patience is inspiring. I especially love the chocolate that randomly appears at just the right time.
Thank you, Angie, for being wonderful YOU! Working with you is a gift, and I feel blessed to be the one on the other side of the curtain.
Happy Friday! We made it, Friend!!!!
