Why I Love Teaching Kindergarten

Because they believe. Fiercely. Because they fill their world with hope and expectation. It's not make-believe. It's wishes-to-be. Santa isn't just a gift-bearer. He's the symbol that all children are equal, no matter who they are or where they live. Santa loves everyone the same, and always will.

I love teaching Kindergarten because these children trust you to be there for them. To teach them. To guide them. To keep them safe. And most of all, to love them. A child who loves you will do anything for you.

Merry Christmas to all. Here's wishing you get to see the holidays from a child's eyes, with all the wonder and magic attached. And a gift or two from Jolly Old St. Nicholas.


  1. Linda, these sentiments are so true, and I live by them every day! I think we have a lot in common. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday and a delightful new year!
