One of the first grade bratty children that I “monitor” outside asked me to wear my safety vest and I decided, “What’s the harm?” So, I put it on her and told her to stay close by me and described to her the job of the Recess Monitor. She took it very seriously and I have to say, did a great job. First graders are natural behavior monitors! They will call you out and love it!
I got a kick out of doing this and now I have a long list of kids waiting to be the Recess Monitor! If only in real life, they could take over this part of my job 😉
I’m actually very thankful for my job and today I got a glimpse of the sun. It peeked out and winked at me and I winked back 🙂
