My heart melted

1. The last time my heart melted was because…

On the first day of school last year, I was doing breakfast duty.  I met R.  She is a walking miracle with all of her health issues.

As she sat at the table, she kept mumbling about students who were in her class.  However she did not really communicate with me.

What I forgot to say is she is the self-contained classroom because of her health issues.  Even though she talks, she does not always communicate with adults she does not interact with on a day to day basis.

During the past year and a half, she has grown leaps and bounds.

I make sure I say hi to her when I see her.  I called Ariel when she was going through a Disney Princess stage.  I’ve tried to teach her my name.

Yesterday, I asked her if she remembered my name.  She stopped the rest of her classmates and would not allow them to move.  Even though once again she could not recall my name, what she said next took my breath away.

“You are the nicest teacher.”

Maybe one day she will remember my name.

Even if she never does remember my name, I will take her kind words to heart.

Have a magical day,
Traci
