Teacher's Laugh Lines
Betty Ward Cain
Just what everyone has been waiting for. I have been asked to write this book for over thirty years. All teachers develop little laugh lines over the years because of all the humorous things that happen while teaching, and I taught Kindergarten for thirty. Five-year-olds have taught me a lot. I was hired as their teacher, but they taught me. What a wonderful experience this was. It was a very enjoyable journey through the minds of little people. Their understanding of what they are hearing is sometimes far from reality. With five-year-olds you do not have to wonder what they are thinking. Just listen closely and they will tell you everything they know!
What a great gift for a teacher!
