While taking the fast lane to adulthood, being in the classroom that they decorated themselves and expanding the minds of our future has been an eye opening but rewarding experience for the new educators.
“In teaching there is never a dull moment, there is always something new and exciting,” Robyn Kiniry, a Special Education teacher at Camargo Elementary School in Montgomery County said. “At the end of the day you’re absolutely exhausted but the feeling you get knowing that your students love school and they love you is the best feeling in the world.”
Looking back at our years in school, we can all probably name a teacher who made an impact on us. For Allison Newsom who was hired as a second grade teacher at Camargo Elementary, this is probably one of her favorite things about teaching so far.
“I just love knowing that I am making a difference in the kids life, big or small, I’m there,” Newsom said. “You love them like they are your own, and it’s crazy to watch them grow so quickly and absorb so much information. They have taught me more about myself then I ever could have imagined.”
They had the ‘first day of school jitters’ like they had in their previous years as a student, but now on the other side, the feeling still continues.
Maria White, a fifth grade teacher at Clearfield Elementary in Rowan County, posted on her Facebook after her first day of school, “It’s official guys, I have fallen in love with 21 fifth graders, even the ones I have yet to meet!”
Adults sometimes wonder about the teachers that their kids will have throughout their educational years. The young teachers who just graduated from young adulthood to the real world are making their way into the school system and having a positive impact on their students as well as their future.
