There's a blue one...a green one...
I am everyday people...
I'm now working in the general neighborhood where I live. In the 12 weeks since school has begun I have run into, or seen a student of mine, while I have been out and about.
Sometimes, the kids are excited and give me a huge "Hi, Ms. Benjamin!" while other times, they look mortified to see me outside of school. Usually you think that pre-school kids freak out about the concept that their teacher may live outside of the building, but 3rd graders can totally think that too!
It is actually really cute to see them try to think of me as a real person when school is done for the day!
The other day, one kiddo and I were talking about our shabbat dinner plans. I told her I was going to a friends house and another boy who was sitting by us went, "But, Ms. Benjamin, tonight when you get home, what will you do for dinner, like how do you get food tonight?"
I smiled and told him that I was a grown-up who lived alone and had to cook her own food, he tried to digest that one, and then went "oh so you have to cook your food, man that's tough!"
Yup. Teacher by day. Everyday person by night. It is cute to know that to these adorable kiddos, from 8 to 3:45 I am just Ms. Benjamin, their teacher.
