The Student Becomes the Teacher

Despite my busy day/week, I had to stop and take a moment to tell. Today I went and volunteered at Macie's class. Before we went she told me, "Now Mom, just because I am your daughter it doesn't mean you can't have me come and read to you." I told her that today I would have her come out and read to me along with her other classmates.

When I called her out into the hall to do her reading she did great. I was about to commend her on how well she did when she said, "Mom you did great, that is exactly how you are supposed to help. Now when I go get the next person, do it the exactly the same way."

Thanks Macie, I am glad that I volunteered in your class the right way! She cracks me up!

I can totally see Macie doing that. She is too smart for her own good. I can take some credit for that since I was her preschool teacher!
