Its Magic, Gosh Dangit!
I really have to remember my class from year to year is like having children. Each child is so completely different its almost unbelievable. If you saw my 5 siblings and I separately, you'd never believe we were related we're so completely different. Its the same way with my classes. Each year I get a new class, a new little baby. And throughout the year I learn what they like, what they don't like, their strengths and weaknesses and learn as I go how to foster their abilities the best I can. This year they are creative- so creative. Little artists that I know someday will actually create comic books you'll buy for your grandkids at Toys-R-Us. They're rock aficionados. They know more 70s and 80s rock songs than I do. They love dark things- haunted houses, vampires, swords, and the all wonderful Abiyoyo!
So while last years students may have loved bears and sparkly things and I miss that, I'm learning to love the students who will sing ACDC with me and want to listen to the song about a monster who had "slobbery teeth cuz he didn't brush "em."
