How Other's See Me......Mrs. Riehle
MRS. RIEHLE- I hear that name more than I hear my first name! MCP Project 52, Week 15, How other's see me....... it was an interesting theme. I thought about it all weekend, Saturday on the way to the cities, Sunday while playing outside with Monkey, Monday during class and finally last night after Monkey went to bed I figured out I needed to do it in the classroom. That is where I am truly myself......I love teaching........even when times are really messed up in education, I still love teaching! I love being a mom and a wife, but I have been a teacher longer than both. I always told my students that I didn't need kids because I had 120 of them each semester and 75 more during volleyball. I am not a teacher hides the way I am, the kids now I'm crazy and silly and serious all at the same time!!! They also know I am passoniate about my art, my marriage and my daughter!!!! Now that I have a daughter that adds the the definition of my life.....mommy.......it makes me a better teacher....how would I want a teacher to treat my daughter?
I spend so much time being a teacher. Not just from 8-4 everyday. I can't wait until May when I can be a teacher for monkey 24/7 for 2.5 months.
So I hope others see me as a mom, a wife, a daugher, a sister, loving, fun, crazy, an artist, an art teacher, caring, funny and a friend.
